Chemould Prescott Road turns 60 this year and is commemorating the occasion with Chemould60, an intergenerational celebration consisting of three shows.
CheMoulding | Framing Future Archives
Curated by Shaleen Wadhwana, CheMoulding | Framing Future Archives is a two part exhibition previewing on 15th September. This exhibition recognises the art frame moulding company as the genesis of this gallery which is a catalyst in moulding Indian art history and its contemporary present.
It features work by over 30+ Chemould contemporaries such as Jitish Kallat, Shilpa Gupta, Anju Dodiya, Varunika Saraf and Nilima Sheikh. These artists have responded to personalised curatorial prompts from the archive, surrounded by archival memorialisation of veteran artists ranging from Tyeb Mehta, K.H. Ara to Bhupen Khakhar, Rummana Hussain, Jangarh Singh Shyam.
The mediums explored are painting, sculpture, textile, film, printmaking, audio, photography, drawing, literature and installation. Reflecting on the gallery’s public institutional role and its internal everyday idiosyncrasies, this exhibition connects the Indian Art Movement and its relationship with Bombay, with India and the rest of the world.
Part 1: Framing | 15th September – 28th October
Part 2: Futuring | 15th November – 23rd December
