Event Description: The Sindhu Project embodies the responses of artists Mahwish Chishty and Gunjan Kumar to explorations of archaeological sites and artifacts in the expansive Sindhu (Indus) watershed, a geographical region stretching across present-day India and Pakistan. Chishty and Kumar, U.S.-based artists, are from Pakistan and India respectively. A chance meeting between them in 2015 at an exhibition that Kumar had curated Hubbard Street Lofts, Chicago led to a 7-year exploration of familial roots through parallel journeys and decoding enigmas of inhabited places across time. Chishty and Kumar, with their detail-oriented approach, bring together their research across Taxila Valley in Pakistan and Sanghol and Dholavira in India. The Sindhu Project debuted at the South Asia Institute in Chicago in July 2021, then in Pakistan at the National College of Arts’ Zahoor-ul-Akhlaq Gallery in November 2021.
