crossing generations: diVERGE

This image captures artwork by Jayashree Chakravarty and Anju Dodiya as shown in the exhibition titled 'Crossing Generations: diVERGE'.

In 2003, Gallery Chemould in Bombay commemorated its fortieth anniversary with an exhibition spanning four generations of Indian artists. The exhibition, titled 'Crossing Generations: diVERGE', was co-curated by Geeta Kapur and Chaitanya Sambrani, with over 50 artists' artworks on display at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Bombay.

The curatorial note by Geeta Kapur and Chaitanya Sambrani states: 'diVERGE presents an adventure of crossings, and sign-posts them to point in both, and in many, directions at once. It presents smooth and awkward crossovers on unevenly charted routes. We hope to configure artworks to explore what these new meanings might (and might-not, after all) be in what is undoubtedly a most volatile moment of the Indian contemporary art.'

On the even of the exhibition, 'The Perfect Frame', a book by Karin Zitzewitz was released. The book documents Kekoo Gandhy's crossing of generations and his participation in the modern Indian art scene since the past four decades.
