Unstill Waters: Contemporary Photography from India, Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, The Smithsonian
Unstill Waters: Contemporary Photography from India foregrounds landscapes of India, real and reimagined, as powerful means of examining environmental and social issues concerning us all. Through still and moving image, seriality, and portraiture, five leading contemporary artists explore rapidly changing natural and built environments in India, from riverbanks, ancient forests, and city streets to surreal symbolic settings.
NAYA ANJOR | Anant Art | CURATED BY ARUSHI VATS
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.”

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
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.
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.
