crossing generations: diVERGE — Floor plan

This document is a series of floor plans (Level 1 to Level 5) for the exhibition layout prepared by curator Geeta Kapur.

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 for Indian contemporary art.'

On the eve 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 over the past four decades.
