The historic occasion of India’s first-ever National Pavilion at the 54th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia – curated by cultural theorist and poet Ranjit Hoskote – approach that idea through the tropes of transcultural practice, migration and cross-pollination. Hoskote’s aim, in making his selection of artists, is to represent a set of conceptually rigorous and aesthetically rich artistic practices that are staged in parallel to the art market. Furthermore, these have not already been valorized by the gallery system and the auction-house circuit.

Everyone Agrees: It’s About to Explode… Indian Pavilion at the 54th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia.  Commissioner: Ranjit Hoskote. Artists: Zarina Hashmi, Gigi Scaria, Praneet Soi, The Desire Machine Collective (Sonal Jain, Mriganka Madhukaillya).
