Her Work is Never Done
Gallery BMB Mumbai is delighted to present the two-part exhibition, Her work is Never Done, curated by Bose Krishnamachari. The first half of the exhibition opens on Monday, 15 February 2010, and the second, on Friday, 26 March 2010. While the exhibition focuses on the works of young and sometimes emergent women artists, it does not attempt to present a comprehensive or truly representative selection of women artists practicing in the country today. Instead, by showcasing an overview of the diverse pluralism in contemporary practices, the show celebrates this rich heterogeneity.
Her Work Is Never Done, brings together the work of a young breed of artists who are making art in a global, politically-charged environment, who are unafraid to confront the realities of gender-biased socio-cultural mechanisms, challenge calcified conventions and subvert stereotypes. Working in a post-digital environment where new media has effected far-reaching changes in visual perception, these artists employ a plethora of styles, with practices rooted variously in architecture, fashion, graphic design, mass media and activism, stubbornly refusing to be boxed into any reductive categories.
