His talk will focus on how their works reflect the country’s cultural and political shifts and how this visual history becomes a key to understanding politics, architecture, cinema, dance, literature and marginal identities.

In 2014, he received the Forbes India Art Award for his curated show, The Sahmat Collective: Art and Activism in India since 1989, at the Smart Museum of Art - Chicago, spanning two decades of contemporary Indian Art within the political sphere.
