Paris centre pompidou celebrates Malani retrospective 2017
Rebellion of the Dead is a call to acknowledge the power of the feminine, the power of intuition in a woman, in a world where the feminist revolution is unfinished, writes Uma Nair.
Global critics and scholars have hailed her as the pioneering visual artist of performance, video art and installation in India. In inviting Nalini Malani to the Center Pompidou for a dedicated retrospective, "The Rebellion of the Dead", Malani stands high and tall as one of India's greatest artists – this high priestess of contemporary art unveils work that spans 50 years. At Pompidou Parisians and media are studying highlights of her work on utopias and dystopias.
