DESCRIPTION

Nalini Malani (b. 1946 in Karachi, Pakistan; lives and works in Mumbai, India) is one of the foremost contemporary women artists from India. Her practice utilizes allegory and symbolism as metaphors to explore issues relating to gender, class, and race in a post-colonial world. Formally, her work spans the mediums of painting, sculpture, installation, performance, and works on paper. This exhibition will feature Transgressions II (2009), a multimedia installation from the Asia Society Museum Collection. This three-channel video integrates the folk sensibility of traditional shadow plays with new technology, creating a mesmerizing projection of colors and shadows. The exhibition will also feature a selection of Malani's artist books. This presentation will represent the artist's first solo museum exhibition in New York in over a decade.
