Four Indian galleries, Chemould Prescott Road, Mumbai; Experimenter, Kolkata; Jhaveri Contemporary, Mumbai & Vadehra Art Gallery, New Delhi present a collaborative exhibition, Conversations on Tomorrow, at Sadie Coles Gallery – Davies Street, London. As centrifugal dialogues on ecologies, our bodies as tools and languages of migration and power, collide with forces that hold us together in our planetary existence, a lexicon for the future of the world rooted in our collective past takes shape in Conversations on Tomorrow. A group exhibition presenting works by Ali Kazim, Anju Dodiya, Atul Dodiya, KM Madhusudhanan, Mithu Sen, Mrinalini Mukherjee, Prabhakar Pachpute & Radhika...

    Best known for his exquisitely detailed and deeply moving portraits, Ali Kazim’s recent work maps the ancient landscapes outside of his hometown Lahore. Once the cradle of the flourishing Indus Valley Civilisation (circa 3000 BCE to 1500 BCE), this rich archaeological site is dotted with mounds and strewn with t...

    Anju Dodiya (b. 1964, India) works with images that centre on the emotional theatre of  the inner world. Often, a female protagonist stands as the gatekeeper, professing not only a compositional narrative but more importantly a psychology of experience to the viewer. In order to traverse an inner landscape, the outer world must effervesce with enough meaning to generate a po...

    Atul Dodiya (b. 1959, India) has often used the cabinet of curiosities, a Wunderkammer reloaded for contemporary times, to perform an annotative function, writing footnotes as it were to the unfolding narrative. These particular cabinets shift focus from their shuttered black- and-white palette- windows, which act as a poetic caesura to a lively bric-a-brac of art history and pop...

    K.M. Madhusudhanan (b. 1956, India)

    Madhusudhanan's Conversations with Black is a set of 16 charcoal drawings. In this series, Madhusudhanan revives his narratives on transition, chiefly the changing nature of  human belief systems that, at times, radically transform how individuals identify themselves or evaluate the boundaries of their belongingness. He considers the mo...

    Mithu Sen (b. 1971, India) presents 'Until you unhome' a series of uncolored, uncontroversial, and virtuous happy-prick-drawings, and for Sen, (un)home is an (un)judgemental space which serves as a disclaimer and an exercise in perceiving what the images are and are not. The work attempts to invite the viewer into Sen’s intuitive, free-spirited practice, her own p...

    Mrinalina Mukerjee (India, 1949- 2015)

    Celebrated for her labour-intensive sculptures made with hemp, which could take her the better part of a year to complete, Mrinalini Mukherjee would experiment with works on paper to keep her hands nimble. With titles such as Moon-Lit Walk, Midnight Lily, Rain, and Storm, these wonderfully delicate and detailed works, made betwe...

    Prabhakar Pachpute (b. 1986, India) works in an array of mediums and materials, but his consistent use of charcoal has a direct connection to his subject matter and familial roots: coal mines and coal miners. Pachpute often creates immersive and dramatic environments in his works, using portraiture and landscape with surrealist tropes to critically tackle issues of mining la...

    Radhika Khimji (b.1979, Oman)

    Radhika Khimji’s work is at once a painting, a drawing and a collage; it is also an embroidery and a sculpture. Because it assumes all these identities, a place between many polarities emerges. Khimji has developed a way of working informed by the physicality and materiality of the making process to deconstruct, evade and erase con...

    Simryn Gill (b. 1959, Singapore)

    Photographer Simryn Gill will present Channel (2014), a series of 29 mostly colour photographs of plastic and cloth debris caught in the roots of coastal trees in front of the artist’s father’s house in Port Dickson, Malaysia, becoming visible when the tide is out. As cibachromes printed in Sydney by Sandra Barnard, with w...
