The exhibition ‘Beyond Transnationalism: The Legacy of Post Independent Art from India’ undertaken at the cusp of India’s 70 years of independence seeks to understand the many positions of artists of South Asian descent living in the United States. The exhibition, commissioned by the Raza Foundation for their festival Raza Utsav in February 2018, unravels the multiple subjectivities of each of the individual artists as palimpsests of varied lived experiences; interactions and relationships no longer unnecessarily tied only to nations. This exhibition asks questions about new ways to articulate this new beyond.

Public Lecture by Ashish Rajadhyaksha
In March 2017, artist Vivan Sundaram presented a major public art project in Mumbai at the CSMVS, of which Rajadhyaksha was the co-author. Inside a massive container simulating a naval ship was an eight-channel sound work, evoking the February 1946 naval uprising in Bombay (now Mumbai). In addressing this moment in history as a work of political art, the Insurrection project speaks to a history of Sundaram's art practice. This talk will address the many aspects of the collaborative project.
Ashish Rajadhyaksha is a film and cultural theorist. He has published widely on cinema and contemporary art, and presented in conferences across the world.
