This Thukral & Tagra’s project is referred to ‘panem et circuses’ a Roman practice of providing free wheat to Roman citizens as well as spectacular games and other forms of entertainment as a means of gaining political power.

Applying this logic to critique the new art economy, the artists probe the very authority that curates entertainment in spectacular and repeated regular intervals.

This exhibition by Indian artist duo Thukral & Tagra features paintings, performance, objects and games as an installation. The title refers to ‘panem et circuses’, a Roman practice of providing free wheat to Roman citizens as well as spectacular games and other forms of entertainment as a means of gaining political power.
