The Chaos Trilogy II: Aliens in a Foreign Land

March 18-June 11, 2023

The Guild, 1028, Ranjanpada Next to Sai Temple, Mandwa Alibaug Road, Alibaug, Maharashtra, India

The Guild is pleased to present The Chaos Trilogy II: Aliens in a Foreign Land, as part of The Chaos Trilogy exhibitions.

This three-part exhibition locates itself in the intersections of the matrix of chaos, change, desire, and crisis that exploded after the 90s in postcolonial India, or the period now widely identified as the post-liberal India. Diverse literature and artistic endeavours have mapped the social, political, economic and cultural shifts of this period. The period has been associated as an important catalyst in the development of contemporary art in India due to the rapid economic shifts, compounded by access to new technological developments, access to a globalised network of art, and the turbulent political climate that foregrounded sectarianism and fundamentalism.

The trope of home and homelessness is an important subject in the art exhibitions of the last few decades. This exhibition will create an important dialogue on alienation and belonging to reconfigure the role of artists in reimagining inclusive politics.
