Chatterjee & Lal are delighted to announce the opening of Naveen Kishore’s solo exhibition of photography, The Green Room.
Comprising two series – Performing the Goddess and The Green Room of the Goddess – the photographs were made in the late 1990s and early 2000s. This is the first time that they are being shown together.
Kishore’s eye is informed by his deep engagement with theatre photography, a genre he has been practicing since beginning to work in theatre production in the early 1970s. He has extensively documented female impersonators from Manipuri, Bengali and Punjabi theatre practices. His interest in street photography comprises the second main thread of his oeuvre.
Performing the Goddess has an illustrious international exhibition history and is also included in the collection the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art, Washington. This is the first time that Kishore is showing at Chatterjee & Lal.
