HOMELANDS - A 21st CENTURY STORY OF HOME, AWAY AND ALL THE PLACES IN BETWEEN.

Cutting to the heart of 21st century cultural relations, Homelands grapples with the relationship between self and place in a world of transitory identities and contested geographies.

Drawn from the British Council Collection, the exhibition is a unique take on contemporary British art by the Indian curator, Latika Gupta. Including more than 80 works by 28 leading modern and contemporary artists - the exhibition excavates the idea of a 'homeland' to reveal a rich plurality of meaning; ideas of belonging, alienation, history and memory.

Latika Gupta is based in Dehli and was a finalist in The Fifth Curator competition which was organised by the British Council in 2009. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue edited by Latika and including essay excerpts by writers such as John Berger,  Judith Butler and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, and poetry by Tenzin Tsundue; Tsoltim N. Shakabpa and Bhuchung D. Sonam.
