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.
Our Time for A Future Caring - Indian Pavillon - Biennale di Venezia
Atul Dodiya is part of the artist line-up for India Pavilion at 58th International Art Exhibition at La Biennale di Venezia 2019.
Our Time for a Future Caring features works by an intergenerational group of artists spanning from twentieth century to present day that either reflect directly on Gandhi and his place in history, focusing on specific moments and their resonances for contemporary audiences, or offer conceptual investigations into his philosophical ideas and broader notions of agency, action and freedom.
