Home in the City: Bombay 1976-Mumbai 2016 by Sooni Taraporevala at The Whitworth, Manchester

Sunaparanta opened its new exhibition Home in the City: Bombay 1976-Mumbai 2016 by Sooni Taraporevala in partnership with the Whitworth Gallery, England. 

Sooni Taraporevala, with whom Sunaparanta enjoys a lasting working relationship, enjoys her first UK solo show: Home in the City, Bombay 1976-Mumbai 2016.  Curated by Sunaparanta Honorary Director, Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi, with patronage from Sunaparanta founders, Dattaraj Salgaocar and Dipti Salgaocar, the show commissioned by Dr. Maria Balshaw opened at the Whitworth on March 4th 2017. 

A sweeping, poignant collection of seminal photographs documenting Taraporevala’s home city, Mumbai, this exhibition is derived from forty years of her astonishing archive.  The show, developed with advisement of PHOTOINK founder, Devika Daulet-Singh, is proof of Taraporevala’s wit, perception, tenderness, and affection for a complex, affecting metropolis.

On 20th July 2017, Sooni Taraporevala gave a rare insight into her black-and-white photographs within the exhibition ‘Home in the City: Bombay 1976-Mumbai 2016’ at The Whitworth, Manchester.

The exhibition will be on view till March 2018.
