Talwar Gallery continues its tradition of bringing ground breaking artwork by un-NRI folks from all around the planet to Planet Manhattan. The latest one is an exhibit of photos and artworks by a long forgotten mastero: Nasreen Mohamedi.
On exhibit are rare photographic works created by the artist from the early 1960s to the late seventies. These black and white photo works, from the artist’s collection, are being exhibited in their entirety for the first time. The shadowed lines of the steps in a Mughal courtyard, the patterns on a road in Japan, or the lines in the sand on a washed beach all explore the creation and consumption of form by light. Further investigations and experiments with light processing and imaging in certain works result in an unfamiliar yet dreamlike landscape.
The exhibit, Nasreen Mohamedi: Photoworks from Nineteen Sixties and Seventies, opens on September 18th.
