SUB CONTINGENT
The Indian Subcontinent in Contemporary Art

Subcontingent, The Indian Subcontinent in Contemporary Art is a group show investigating the notion of the Indian Subcontinent (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Myanmar and Maldives) through the work of 26 artists. While the majority of them has studied and lives in India and Pakistan, others live abroad and are culturally and biographically linked to the Subcontinent. All the artists thoroughly explore the complexity of this geographical area, and many of them exhibit in Europe and in Italy for the first time. The show elaborates on many dissimilar points of view, and the works use different mediums (video, installations, painting and sculpture) resulting in the evocation of a diverse and multifaceted cultural landscape. The concept of the exhibition stems from the idea that, although it is "only" a sub-continent, the social, political, religious and economic disparity and diversity of this region make it an area of astonishing multiplicity, and a place of innovation and creativity.

This exhibition is conceived as a journey in which the variety of voices, political positions and modes of expression give birth to a contingent microcosm that is irreducible to a single interpretation. A subcontingent is a detachment, a group both separate from and related to a larger unit, which is sent out into the world to undertake a specific task. The exhibition is inspired to a Subcontinent of contingencies, a subcontingent universe. The heterogeneity of the works plays out intimate considerations, political visions and social criticisms about the Subcontinent; but it also analyses global issues such as the unregulated urbanisation of Asian megalopolis, the spreading of religious fundamentalism and the silent repression of ethnical minorities. In order to point out issues of distance in the dichotomy centre-periphery, Raqs Media Collective operated as critical respondents to the curatorial concept and framework, elaborating its own perspective in special interventions in the space and in the catalogue.

According to me "I feel making beautiful clothes is an art and it requires creativity and time, to make somebody look beautiful".
