Growing Like a Tree: A Group Show

January 20-May 20, 2021 11 am-6 pm

Ishara Art Foundation, A3, Alserkal Avenue, Al Quoz, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Ishara Art Foundation opens Growing Like A Tree – an exhibition of photographic works curated by Sohrab Hura.

Referencing the interconnected spheres of contemporary artistic practice, the show considers photography as a locus in an expanded field of art that includes videos, books and sound installations. In Hura’s own words, “What I’ve been seeing over the years are collective flows in terms of movement and exchange of photographers across political, geographical and cultural boundaries”.

Tackling themes of changing cities, collective memory, the environment, public spaces and the archive, the exhibition features work by 14 artists and collectives from South Asia including Aishwarya Arumbakkam, Anjali House, Bunu Dhungana, Farah Mulla, Jaisingh Nageswaran, Katrin Koenning, Munem Wasif, Nida Mehboob, Nepal Picture Library, Reetu Sattar, Sarker Protick, Sathish Kumar, Sean Lee and Yu Yu Myint Than, along with site-specific interventions by Sohrab Hura.
