“Qui Vive?” Moscow International Biennale for Young Art

beginning on the July 4 until 28th, 2010 will include an art project “Tradition in Transition” by an Indian curator Preeti Singh Rajawat in collaboration with a Russian curator Irina Urnova, slated to include as proposed the artworks by 12 young, talented and  up-and-coming Indian artists. “Tradition in Transition” aims at presenting for the first time to the Russian and International public the works of the artists Arpit Biloria, Ajay Rajpurohit,Sharad Bharadwaj, Deviba Wala, Hitendra Bhati,   Sukesan Kanka, Sanjay Soni, Tensing Joseph, Padmini Mehta, Vipul Prajapati, Umesh Prasad, Saiyed Akbar Ali, Sanjay Soni, and placing them in the context of the global contemporary art scene.
This project aims at bringing together a group of young Indian artists, each exploring different aspects of the boundaries of Indian identity in the modern world through their chosen medium within the language of painting. While art of the older Indian artists is well known and universally recognized around the world to incorporate motifs of Indian heritage at its core, the works of the younger generation, such as represented in “Tradition in Transition” goes further still, opening much more to the global prospective. Does it, however, still retain any trace of its intrinsic Indian-ness, or has it progressed much further to become in itself a part of the globalized creative identity? Those are some of the questions this exhibition is trying to answer…   

The State Museum Reserve Park Tsaritsyno. Moscow, Russia. 

The Biennale selection committee has considered this project to be of very high interest, to be included in this year’s exhibition. This project will be one of the earliest and most prolific showcases of young Indian art in Russia today.
