Nasreen Mohamedi & Arpita Singh in Elles font l'abstraction

May 19 - August 23, 2021

The exhibition sets out to write the history of the contributions of women artists to abstraction with works dating from the 1860s to the 1980s. Far from being a mere catalogue, the exhibition reveals the decisive turning points that marked this development, the specific contexts for creation, the research conducted by the artists, individually or in groups, as well as the founding exhibitions.

Ranjani Shettar: Earth Songs for a Night Sky

May 16 - August 25, 2019

Earth Songs for a Night Sky is a multi-faceted project by Ranjani Shettar. Occupying two rooms and the staircase of the original Phillips House, the project is conceived in dialogue with Wassily Kandinsky’s artist’s book Klänge (Sounds)—which features 56 woodcuts and was published right after he had made his breakthrough into abstraction—and Klee’s late paintings in the Phillips’s collection, including Arab Song (1932), Efflorescence (1937), and Figure of the Oriental Theater (1934).

Rummana Hussain in Our time for a future sharing

May 11 – November 24, 2019

Unhinged by events of 1992-93, Rummana embarked on a courageous pursuit to excavate the marginalization of the other, their means and sustenance. Now, over 25 years after they were first created by the artist they still resonate with renewed vigor, except what were local origins at the time are now pervasive around the globe, abundant in echoes of intolerance to secularism and self.

Alwar Balasubramaniam in You Remind Me of Someone

February 23 - June 17, 2018

You Remind Me of Someone relies on mechanisms triggered by resemblance, mimicry, and reciprocity in order to explore our relationship to images in a world in which they multiply endlessly on a daily basis. The visual and gestural similarities between the works question affinities, elicit encounters, seek to find a common thread in this continuous flux.
