EVERYTHING WE DO IS MUSIC

15.4.-10.6.2018

Opening: Sat 14.4.2018, 5pm

This group show explores how Indian classical music has inspired modern and contemporary artists. The exhibition traces a long history: from early Indian miniature painting (Ragamalas) through to drawings, animations and video works from the present day. Including works by pivotal Indian and Pakistani artists, it features a number of works previously unseen in Europe, including new commissions. It also explores the influence of Indian classical music on important American artists in the 1960s, and its wider influence on western popular and counterculture.
