The exhibition features 47 leading or emerging photographic and new media artists of Indian origin, working both in India and in the global diaspora. Exhibited in four Houston venues, including three restored industrial buildings in the Washington Avenue Arts District and a new collaboration with Asia Society Texas Center, the exhibition is ambitious, presenting a diverse range of approaches and ideas.
Organized by Lead Curator Sunil Gupta and FotoFest Executive Director Steven Evans, INDIA/ Contemporary Photographic and New Media Art addresses issues as varied as caste and class, gender and sexuality, activism and conflict, racism, religion, nationalism, new technologies and development, the environment, human settlement, migration, and integration.. The exhibition is merely one component of FotoFest's 2018 India program, which also includes a hardcover book co-published by FotoFest and Schilt Publishing in Amsterdam, the Netherlands; a two-day symposium; public conversations with curators and artists; a program of films from India; literary events; culinary programs; and a special curriculum for K-12 students and family learning activities developed by FotoFest's learning program, Literacy Through Photography.
