Haze. Contemporary Art From South Asia

Fondazione Elpis opens its new exhibition spaces in Milan with the group exhibition "HAZE. Contemporary Art From South Asia", curated by HH Art Spaces and Mario D'Souza.

Via Orti 25, Milano

Haze” aims to offer a fresh look at contemporary art in South Asia and tell the story of the role of the visual arts in the narrative of a global crisis that affects different levels: ecological, political and socio-cultural. The exhibition presents established and emerging practices of 21 artists of different generations active in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, ranging from painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, performance and site-specific installations.

Emphasising the dynamism of the South Asian art scene, the exhibition explores different approaches to contemporaneity, presenting narratives and reflections that span a wide range of topics: from the conditions and rights of workers in an era of global migration to gender issues, from the post-colonial legacy to the expropriation of indigenous lands, from freedom of expression to the political situation to the survival and metamorphosis of traditions and rituals.
