Prof. Roshini Kempadoo and alumni Sunil Gupta are part of the group exhibition, The World that Belongs to Us opening on Thursday 24 November at The New Art Gallery Walsall in Birmingham.
Curated by Aziz Sohail with Head of Exhibitions, Deborah Robinson, this exhibition brings together a constellation of intergenerational artists from the South Asian diasporas of the UK, USA and Canada.
Sharing a common thread of combining autobiography and activism, and working across a wide range of media including painting, photography, film, animation, wall drawing and site-specific installation, these practices activate a wide range of conversations around community and belonging, friendship and intimacy, migrant and diasporic storytelling and queer world-making.
Chila Kumari Singh Burman, Chitra Ganesh, Sunil Gupta and Charan Singh, Roshini Kempadoo, Pamila Matharu, Hardeep Pandhal, Jagdeep Raina, Sa’dia Rehman, Salman Toor
The title of this exhibition was inspired by an anthology of poetry from South Asia, edited by Aditi Angiras and Akhil Katyal.
A dedicated microsite will accompany the exhibition with essays by Dr Alice Correia, Dr Alpesh K Patel and Aziz Sohail and documentation of the exhibition.
