Hawala: A Group Show

September 16-October 29, 2021

Paradise Row, 2 Bourdon Street London, UK

Paradise Row presents a one-year, nonprofit, curatorial project Hawala. Hawala takes as its starting point the parallels between the eponymous informal, decentralised, and ledger-based system of money exchange prevalent in South Asia and its diasporic communities, and the structure and functionality of blockchain technology. The show brings together a group of London-based artists of South Asian descent, Chila Kumari Singh Burman, Shezad Dawood, Sunil Gupta, Haroun Hayward, Harminder Judge, Jasleen Kaur, Haroon Mirza, Anousha Payne, and Rithika Pandey, selected to highlight hyperlinked connections that run throughout their practice, either through a contemporary updating of mythic constellations, or an archiving of subcultures or ecologies.
