Event Description : EXHIBITION Bhavna Kakar presents "Dissensus" Group show presented by Latitude 28

Latitude 28 begins this season with the group show, ‘Dissensus’ that continues its commitment to emerging artists, contextualizing their work alongside eminent artists and also brings acclaimed international artists to India for the first time. This year we are introducing Priyanka D’Souza, a young MSU Baroda trained artist, who responds to deeply political and social contemporary issues through work that is inspired by Mughal miniatures. Her work is on display alongside Veer Munshi’s collaboration with Kashmiri craftsmen — another instance of maintaining continuity between tradition and contemporary liberal, humanist ideas. Also presented are works by Australia-based artist Khadim Ali, who was recently featured in Art Asia Pacific’s list of top 40 artists under 40 in the Asia Pacific region and acclaimed artist Waseem Ahmed. ‘Dissensus’ also marks the first India exhibition for Iranian artist Neda Tavallaee, who addresses her feminist concerns through the language of Persian miniatures.


Dissensus brings together works by six artists who have been witness to the political and identity crises in regions of ongoing conflict — Nepal, Afghanistan, Iran, Kashmir in India and Pakistan. Even when the issues that are of immediate concern to them range from gender, territorial dispute, anxieties regarding cultural annihilation and ethnic marginalization, these artists withdraw into immediate, everyday contexts, and markers of cultural identity to construct quiet acts of dissent away from the central political stage. These intimate testimonies and observations employ the aesthetic to develop a micro-poetics of the stakes borne by civilians whose concerns are overlooked in media-narratives driven by political figureheads, capital and diplomatic ties. It is not coincidental that several artists find a language in the subtlety of the miniature tradition to voice their politics. Scale and detail evoke the marginal locations of their themes, and the multitude that is united in these narratives.
