Anant Art is pleased to announce Naya Anjor, a group exhibition curated by Arushi Vats welding distinct artistic approaches that are keeping vigil against the extractive occupations of mountains, forests and rivers in South Asia. Inspired by a song by Faguram Yadav, a poet at the heart of Chattisgarh Mukti Morcha, the exhibition presents collective imaginaries, narrative flights and stories of resistance struggles as vital sources against anthropocenic nihilism and will be on view from 2 December – 12 December 2022 at Center for Contemporary Arts, Bikaner House. “Naya Anjor”, which translates to a “new ray” harks to the promise of Octavia Butler’s radical assertion: “There is nothing new under the sun, but there are new suns.”
