One and one make eleven
Contemporary Art from India

"One and one make eleven" gathers nine positions from the extensive contemporary art scene in India. The exhibition focuses on forms of dialogue, exchange and collaboration between artists, their subject, with other actors and the audience. The Indian artists do so by using all media and make reference to topics of their everyday life, to living in the big city, the resource problems and Pollution, given the population explosion or the traditional gender ratio that does not fit into the modern metropolitan life. The invited artists are born between 1964-1989 and live in Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai.

Atul Bhalla, Prerna Bishnoi, Cop Shiva, Archana Hande, Reena Kallat, Nandita Kumar, Pra­jakta Potnis, Sumakshi Singh, Surekha
