Watchlist Artist: Priyanka Choudhary

To commemorate 100 years of Word War 1, we are pleased to announce artist Priyanka Choudhary’s fourth solo show titled 1914 - 2014 at Gallery Maskara.

From Titian to today, war and the aftermath of war has always found its way into art and art history. The year 2014 is of particular significance as it is the centenary year of World War 1. It was a moment that forever changed the geo-political and economic landscape of the 20th century and had a catalytic effect on India's struggle for Independence.

Even though the conflict happened at a time that predates many of the contemporary artists living and working today, its consequence is undeniable.
