Atul Dodiya

The artist

Atul Dodiya was born in 1959 in Mumbai where he lives and works. One of the pioneers of contemporary Indian art, he builds bridges between the history of Indian and Western art. His references to popular culture, cinema and literature point to an underlying political analysis of the aspirations of the Indian middle class and the impact of globalisation on their traditions. Atul Dodiya uses a broad spectrum of media, from his early photo-realism to the works on metal shutters that sealed his international reputation.

QUEENS MUSEUM, USA

Taking its title from the phrase “Midnight’s Children,” coined by Salman Rushdie in his seminal 1981 novel about India’s transition to independence, After Midnight: Indian Modernism to Contemporary India, 1947/1997 weaves themes of art and nation-building to reveal shifting zeitgeists in cultural production, and explores how these artistic practices regard and contest a geopolitical consciousness through modernization and globalization Featured artists include: CAMP, Nikhil Chopra, Desire Machine Collective, Atul Dodiya, Anita Dube, V.S. Gaitonde, Sheela Gowda, Shilpa Gupta, Subodh Gupta, M.F. Husain, Tushar Joag, Jitish Kallat, Krishen Khanna, Ram Kumar, Tyeb Mehta, Akbar Padamsee, Prajakta Potnis, Sreshta Rit Premnath, Raqs Media Collective, S.H.

ATUL DODIYA, 7000 MUSEUMS : A PROJECT FOR THE REPUBLIC OF INDIA,  DR. BHAU DAJI LAD MUMBAI CITY MUSEUM

DR. BHAU DAJI LAD MUSEE DE LA VILLE DE MUMBAI

The exhibition 7000 Museums is a continuation of the Museum’s curatorial series ‘Engaging Tradition’ which encourages contemporary artists to engage with the Museum’s history and collection. Through his watercolours and oil painting, exhibited in a dialogue with varied conceptual frameworks from the Museum’s collection, Atul Dodiya humorously adresses ideas of local cultural representation as well as the semantics of museums and museum displays. His works also reference historical events from the freedom struggle interrupted by moments of art history.
