Notations on Time

January 18, 2023 @ 10:00 am - May 20, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

A group exhibition, Notations on Time showcases the works of 20 contemporary artists from South Asia and its diaspora, exploring the philosophical and political dimensions of time. Curated by Sandhini Poddar and Sabih Ahmed, the exhibition creates a dialogue between artistic generations, highlighting entanglements between the past, present, and future. What makes Notations on Time unique is its focus on exploring art in notational, experimental, and fragmentary forms, standing apart from Western notions of linearity, progress, and capitalist domination.

The exhibition includes works by prominent artists such as Soumya Sankar Bose, Sheba Chhachhi, Shezad Dawood, Ladhki Devi, Gauri Gill & Rajesh Vangad, Aziz Hazara, Amar Kanwar, Ali Kazim, Mariah Lookman, Haroon Mirza, Anoli Perera, Lala Rukh, Jangarh Singh Shyam, Dayanita Singh, Ayesha Sultana, Jagdish Swaminathan, Chandraguptha Thenuwara, and Zarina, accompanied by an infra-vocabulary from Raqs Media Collective’s book ‘Seepage’.

Notations on Time will be on view until 20th May at Ishara Art Foundation, providing a unique opportunity for art enthusiasts to experience this veritable laboratory of time.
