For the edition of Mumbai Gallery Weekend 2020, Art Musings presented ‘Transients’, a photography exhibition showcasing works by contemporary Indian photographer Sheetal Mallar, curated by Ranjit Hoskote. In her work, Mallar has focused on the delicate, unspoken relationships that bind people to places, and on the layers of active and latent signals by which individuals signal their identity and aspirations. She has developed an extended portraiture of various urban subcultures and professional groups, exploring the tension between the individual personality and the collective context. Several of her ongoing projects engage with the culture, topography and narratives of popular Indian cinema.
