Like nursery rhymes about the black plague or fairy tales about dictatorial empires, here is a site-specific installation that employs a colorful playfulness in form to access dark and grave content. Galerie Espace Typographie in Paris, where Hema Upadhyay first recreated this dioramic view of miniature slum dwellings in Bombay, is a former textile godown, with natural lighting from a roof made of glass, with echoes from walls made of stone and appearing as a construction or storage site with con...

Presenting an art survey of another culture which happens to be a large portion of the minority ethnic group in the UK and even larger diaspora is brave, challenging, and much needed. Empire Strikes Back is a rousing effort to introduce and highlight the various innovative, prominent, and mischievous representations and methods of Indian artists producing work today.
