Through Other Eyes – Contemporary Art from South Asia

The Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in Swansea is to unveil its newest exhibition presenting a selection of drawings, paintings, sculptures, photographs and films by emerging artists from India and Pakistan.

through other eyesThe selected works show artists seeking to redefine their place in the world at a crucial stage in the cultural life of India and Pakistan, with each artist negotiating the legacy of their respective regional cultural traditions and the rising pressure to embrace globalisation as an emblem of progress, modernity and a better future.

It also includes works by contemporary artists to challenge the assumptions on which we decide what qualifies as 'contemporary art'. None of the work has been shown outside India or Pakistan before.

It is curated by Gerard Mérmoz who undertook a three month journey from Kochi in India to Lahore in Pakistan via Bangalore, Mumbai, Bhopal, Vadodara, Delhi, Kolkata and Santiniketan.

The exhibition runs from 9 May – 5 July with the preview evening on 8 May at 7pm. For more information visit http://www.glynnviviangallery.org or telephone 01792 516900.

Through Other Eyes is a Touring Exhibition from the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Coventry.
