10-29 September, 2022

Aicon Contemporary, 35 Great Jones Street, New York, USA

Aicon Contemporary presents a solo show of works by Swagata Bhattacharyya, Scenes From A Despot’s Dream.

With a particular focus on urban design, the artist presents a series of works that portray a parallel world that is congruent with the changes India as a nation has been undergoing. Comprising both etchings made by the artist and digitally printed scenes of built spaces, there is a three-dimensional aspect to the works presented in the exhibition. Swagata Bhattacharyya paints a picture of a fictional realm and makes further explorations into world-building with this exhibition.

Aicon Contemporary specializes in showcasing emerging and established contemporary artists of South-Asian origin, providing them a platform on a global stage.
