PAPER CUTS  

Art, Bureaucracy, and Silenced Histories in Colonial India  
  
Thursday 25 April — Friday 12 July 2024  
  
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.
