India & History's Ghosts: Raqs Media Collective

6:30pm October 29, 2014

Diana Event Oval, Barnard College

This event is free and open to the public.

About the event:

The Barnard International Artists Series is proud to welcome the Delhi-based trio Raqs Media Collective: Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula and Shuddhabrata Sengupta. The work of these world-renowned artists is located at the intersection of contemporary art, historical enquiry and philosophical speculation. In part, their work is a response to history’s ghosts, restlessness, and today’s India. In the words of The Guardian: “They make videos, high-tech objects, installations and online projects exploring a world reshaped by globalization.” This will be a rare opportunity to hear the artists discuss their work and the ideas that inspire them. 
 

About Raqs:

Raqs Media Collective is a group of three media practitioners—Jeebesh Bagchi (New Delhi, 1965), Monica Narula (New Delhi, 1969) and Shuddhabrata Sengupta (New Delhi, 1968)—based in New Delhi. Raqs is best known for its contribution to contemporary art, and has presented work at most of the major international shows, from Documenta to the Venice Biennale; but the collective is active in an unusually wide range of domains, and it is perhaps this breadth that gives their work its originality and scope. In 2008, the members of Raqs were co-curators of the European Biennial of Contemporary Art. More recently, their work has been exhibited at the Baltimore Museum of Art; the Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art in Beijing; the Contemporary Art Centre, New Orleans; The Photographers’ Gallery, London; and Frith Street Gallery.
