Library Shelf Location 15a.GBGU
Publication Date 2013
Description Cutting to the heart of 21st century cultural relations, Homelands grapples with the relationship between self and place in a world of transitory identities and contested geographies. Drawn from the British Council Collection, the exhibition offers a unique take on contemporary British art by the Indian curator, Latika Gupta. Including more than 80 works by 28 leading modern and contemporary artists, the exhibition excavates the idea of a 'homeland' to reveal a rich plurality of meaning; ideas of belonging, alienation, history and memory. The catalogue has been edited by the exhibition's curator, Latika Gupta. It contains poems and essay excerpts by writers on the exhibition's themes. Published alongside an exhibition opening at IGNCA, Delhi (January 2013) then touring to The Harrington Street Arts Centre, Calcutta (March 2013); Dr Bahu Lad Museum, Mumbai (April – June 2013); NGMA Bengalore (June – July 2013). # Artists: Angus Boulton, Anthony Haughey, Anthony Lam, Bob and Roberta Smith, Cornelia Parker, David Hockney, David Shrigley, Fabien Cappello, George Shaw, Gillian Wearing, Graham Gussin, Grayson Perry, Haroon Mirza, Jeremy Deller, Jimmie Durham, Langlands & Bell, Lisa Cheung, Martin Parr, Mona Hatoum, Nathan Coley, Paul Graham, Rachel Lowe, Raymond Moore, Richard Long, Suki Dhanda, Susan Hiller, Tim Hetherington, Zineb Sedira. # Authors: Andrea Rose, Rob Lynes, Latika Gupta, Tariq Ali, John Berger, Judith Butler, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Tenzin Tsundue, Tsoltim N.
