Dayanita Singh – ‘I Use Photography to Transform Space’

Vie, 2021-04-16 17:13
Photographer Dayanita Singh explains how her photography books are like sculptures, and tells us how the overpowering colour of India led to her work in black and white, which she felt made images ‘more elusive’. The artist also talks about her frustrations with how images become ‘fossilized’ in museums and art galleries, and how this prompted to develop her mobile ‘pocket museums’ – structures that allow Dayanita herself, or invited participants, to move and change displays of her work.

Interview with Rahul Jain

Vie, 2021-04-16 17:13
By the Victoria & Albert Museum. Textile designer and historian Rahul Jain was born – and lives and works– in New Delhi. In 1993, Jain set up ASHA, a workshop of traditional Indian drawlooms in Varanasi. ASHA weaves patterned samite, lampas, double-cloth and velvet textiles, modelled on Indian, Iranian, and Turkish fabrics. ASHA's woven images, motifs, and textures are inspired by Mughal, Safavid and Ottoman silks, and are made in pure silk, gold and silver. As a centuries-old Indo-Iranian art nears extinction, Jain discusses the importance of continuing this ancient craft today, and his fascination with the materials.

Sheela Gowda – 'Art Is About How You Look At Things'

Vie, 2021-04-16 17:13
Sheela Gowda is an artist living and working in Bengalaru (formerly Bangalore), India. The artist moved from painting to three-dimensional work in the 1990s in reaction to India’s political unease. Gowda’s work is rooted in her experience of daily life in Bengalaru, observing the coexistence of ritual and superstition alongside modern urban and economic transformation. Behold (2009) consists of two contrasting materials, steel car bumpers and knotted human hair. Behold was inspired by the humble talismans of human hair that are knotted around car bumpers to ward off bad luck. The hair comes from local temples, where it is cut off as a sacrificial offering when pilgrims fulfil sacred vows. In today’s consumer driven world, the longer lengths are sold to make wigs or supply keratin for beauty products, while the shorter sections are kept to make protective talismans, such as those used by motorists. Sheela Gowda's Behold (2009) on display at Tate Modern:

Vie, 2021-04-16 16:42

This video accompanied the exhibition "Rembrandt and the Inspiration of India" (March 13, 2018 – June 24, 2018) at the Getty Museum. For more information visit:

Conserving Cuzco School Paintings

Vie, 2021-04-16 15:51
Follow the conservation treatment and research of “Emblem of Folly,” a painting from colonial Cuzco. This is one of ten paintings in the Cuzco School style that were recently gifted to The Met as part of the Museum’s effort to collect works from colonial Latin America. José Luis Lazarte Luna, Assistant Conservator in Paintings Conservation, who was born and raised in Lima, Peru, says that conservation can “shine a light on those communities or artists that have not had the focus before.” These paintings have many unknowns, from the identities of their Indigenous makers to the materials they used. Committed study of these works can help create a better understanding of Latinx cultural identity and history. Featured object: Emblem of Folly, Unknown artist, Peru, 18th century. Oil on canvas, 49 5/8 x 43 5/16 in. (126 x 110 cm).
