Ishara Art Foundation A3 Alserkal Avenue Street 17, Al Quoz 1 Dubai, UAE

Ishara Art Foundation presents Only Life, Myriad Places, a major solo exhibition of Sudarshan Shetty. Celebrating the global premiere of the film ‘One Life Many’, the exhibition marks the first survey of Shetty’s moving image works, featuring multi-media installations and sculptures.

The exhibition at Ishara features eight significant works from Shetty’s vast oeuvre, presenting his rare and deep interest in the musical and literary traditions of South Asia. In the unique form of interdisciplinarity that his practice advocates, a key motif that runs throughout the exhibition is a ‘poetics of listening’. Videos, images, objects and texts assume a fleeting presence in Shetty’s repertoire, as if they were musical notes that are at once real yet ungraspable, repetitive yet novel.
