Twinspotting: Patel Twins in Britain and India 

This image captures a series of photographs by Ketaki Sheth shown in 'Bombay/Mumbai 1992-2001'. The exhibition, co-curated by Geeta Kapur and Ashish Rajadhyaksha, was part of 'Century City: Art and Culture in the Modern Metropolis' at Tate Modern, London, 2001.

Regarding the exhibition, the curators write:
'Bombay/Mumbai 1992-2001 presents the embattled visual culture of India’s leading metropolis. Committed to the cultural dynamic of secularism, we have positioned artworks, photography, video, film, and architecture as signs in the city's persistent desire to transform.'

'Century City' explored the relationship between the metropolis and the creation of art. It focused on the various twentieth-century art centres in the world, such as Paris, New York, Vienna, Moscow, London, Bombay/Mumbai, Lagos, Rio de Janeiro, and Tokyo. Curators included Okwui Enwezor, Olu Obuibe, Emma Dexter, Lutz Becker, Geeta Kapur, Ashish Rajadhyaksha, Donna De Salvo, Serge Fauchereau, Paulo Venancio Filho, Reiko Tomii, Richard Calvocoressi, and Keith Hartley.
