XIII Havana Biennial, 2019

The exhibition, which is staged at the Centro de Arte Contemporáneo Wifredo Lam, is titled “The construction of the possible” and aims to continue its founding principles of equality and justice, “taking into account the conditions of a world in which nuclear and war-mongering threats, xenophobia, racism, forced displacement, fascist tendencies, violence against those who are different, ethnic-cultural conflicts, inequality, terrorism, the systematic use of lies have intensified, and an environmental crisis that threatens the survival of the human species itself,” according to exhibition materials. – Artnews

Ecologies of Loss, PAV Center Turin, Italy

Ecologies of Loss, PAV Center Turin, Italy

PAV Parco Arte Vivente presents Ecologies of Loss, the first Italian solo exhibition of the Indian artist Ravi Agarwal. Curated by Marco Scotini, this exhibition continues the investigation into the relationship between artistic practices and ecological thought in the Asian context, begun with the solo exhibition of the Chinese artist Zheng Bo. This research wants to take stock of the “centrality of Asia in the climate crisis” as claimed by Amitav Ghosh.

The Desert of the Anthropocene, India Art Fair Project, Feb 2019

The Desert of the Anthropocene, India Art Fair Project, Feb 2019

The ongoing project traverses and contrasts a personal memory of a desert homeland in a now abandoned ancestral home with new exploitation of the ‘barren’ landscape. Pointing towards the loss of the local leading to the breakdown of ecological constructs of identity, food systems, water, and land, the terrain is now increasingly thought of as infertile, leading to it being a ground for nuclear testing, new industrial mining and capital intensive irrigation canals. Meanwhile, the dried up wells, ponds, loss of livelihoods, and the slow disappearance of a rich culture is leading to another kind of human evacuation. Yet, what is considered bare or barren is in fact deeply inhabited and fertile in multiple ways.
