Being Singular Plural: Moving Images from India

June 26–October 10, 2010

Being Singular Plural is the first exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim to focus exclusively on artistic production in India. While recent international exhibitions have celebrated the country’s economic boom and the concomitant strength of the art market, this exhibition is oriented instead toward coproducing new work, facilitating research, and assembling a community of practitioners. It unites a selection of recent films and videos, which investigate the individual natures of life and the moving image and are produced by some of the most innovative and rigorous media practitioners in India: Shumona Goel and Shai Heredia, Sonal Jain and Mriganka Madhukaillya of Desire Machine Collective, Amar Kanwar, and Kabir Mohanty. Curated by Sandhini Poddar, Assistant Curator of Asian Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York
