Ishara Art Foundation presents a talk with Sudarshan Shetty in conversation with Sabih Ahmed.
Sudarshan Shetty’s latest solo exhibition, Only Life, Myriad Places captures the artist’s rare and deep interest in musical traditions and oral traditions from the subcontinent. The talk will touch on the theme of echolocating – particularly how we locate ourselves in the world through listening and bring wider perspectives on acts of listening that art and literature invite viewers into.
Pre-registration is mandatory due to limited seats. The programme will be conducted in English.
About the Artist:
Sudarshan Shetty was born in 1961 and currently lives and works in Mumbai. Trained as a painter at the Sir J.J. School of Art, Shetty subsequently turned to sculpture and installation as his primary mediums. As a conceptual artist, he is renowned for enigmatic, mixed media works that celebrate the fusion of Indian and Western traditions. His practice carefully juxtaposes materials and objects belonging to vastly distinct cultures to create compositions that are at once familiar and uncanny.
