According to Mrs. Nadar, “As a collector and institution-builder, I’ve been following the forays of contemporary artists into a variety of mediums including video and digital arts. The KNMA collection has a substantial representation of cutting-edge artists and video artworks that are historically important, and mark the trajectory. This exhibition is our effort to bring attention and popularity to this medium of video art in the larger public domain.”
The exhibition takes place at the Noida branch of the KNMA.
