Growing Like a Tree

An exhibition that looks at regional histories of image-making through a visual and sonic excavation of place, memory and culture.

Ishara Art Foundation, Warehouse 3, Alserkal Avenue, Al Quoz 1, Dubai, UAE

As the first institutional showcase for many of the artists and the first curatorial venture by Sohrab Hura, the exhibition “Growing Like a Tree” reveals a network of collaborations across geographies, where a strong sense of community and exchange emerges in contemporary lens-based practices.

The artists tackle themes such as our interconnectedness with the environment, changing cities, the politics of exclusion, collective memory, public space and the archive. Growing Like A Tree gestures towards multiple nodes that comprise a constellation of entanglements, of being a solitary artist in a shared world held captive by the moment.

The show brings together 14 artists, photographers and collectives from Bangladesh, Cambodia, Germany, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, and Singapore, including Farah Mulla, Sean Lee, Munem Wasif and archival photography by Nepal Picture Library that looks at the representation of women in public space.
