At Ishara Art Foundation, Body Building includes over ninety works by sixteen artists from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and France. As the play on words within the title suggests, the exhibition explores South Asian identities and perspectives in the context of architecture and the built environment. Significant bodies of work by each individual practitioner come together in this exhibition, reflecting the multiplicity of urban experiences across cities in South Asia. Increasing urbanization and property development across the region is reconsidered alongside the aspirations and challenges that accompany these economic transformations.
