October 17, 2020 – January 10, 2021

Visions from India presents a breathtaking sweep of 21st-century painting, sculpture, and multimedia works from India and its diaspora. It features some of the most sought-after international artists alongside younger rising stars, including Sudarshan Shetty, Bharti Kher, and Jitish Kallat.

The exhibition showcases a remixing of traditional crafts with radical new applications, interactive sculpture and stunning paintings. Based on private collectors Ron and Ann Pizzuti’s original 2017 presentation in Columbus, Ohio, this will be the only other opportunity to see Visions from India in the United States.

Betwixt and Beyond

Toward a New Indian Art and Identity

Please enjoy the opening weekend lecture for Visions from India: 21st-Century Art from the Pizzuti Collection. Dr. Siddhartha V. Shah of the Peabody Essex Museum discusses the ever-evolving story of India; one quite distinct from the fantasy of a timeless, unchanging India that so many have. By discussing his own research and writing as well as topics within Visions from India, Shah reveals the challenges that Indian artists and creatives face in being from a country both ancient and new and how they find great opportunity to reinvent and unravel centuries of ignorance and prejudice about India and Indian-ness.
