This event is part of Peltz Gallery's current exhibition Paper Cuts: Art, Bureaucracy, & Silenced Histories in Colonial India

Who gets remembered, and who forgotten? This exhibition examines a collection of works on paper made by British colonialists in nineteenth-century India. Seen in public for the first time, the collection is placed into dialogue with contemporary artworks by Ravista Mehra and Divya Sharma. PAPER CUTS critically reflects on the silencing effect of the colonial archive - and points toward a more equitable future.

25 April - 12 July 2024, 10am-8pm, Mondays to Fridays only.
