The State of Architecture: Practices and Processes in India Exhibition
6 January – 20 March, 2016 | National Gallery of Modern Art, Mumbai
Timings: 11 am – 6 pm, except Monday and National Holidays
Curated by Rahul Mehrotra, Ranjit Hoskote and Kaiwan Mehta
This exhibition will present the state of contemporary architecture in India within a larger historical overview since Independence. It will not only map emerging practices but also discuss the aspirations they represent, and stimulate a conversation on architecture among the architectural fraternity, patrons and public at large. Embodying a spectrum of positions that characterise architectural production in India, the content is intended to be provocative and make explicit the multiple, and often simultaneously valid, streams of architectural thought and engagement that truly represent the pluralism of India.
The exhibition will also be accompanied by other related and allied events such as smaller exhibitions, symposia, lectures, award ceremonies, etc.
