ATUL DODIYA, JITISH KALLAT, ASIM WAQIF – AFTER MIDNIGHT : Indian Modernism to Contemporary India, 1947/1997

Les artistes

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.

Born in 1974 in Mumbai, Jitish Kallat is one of the most promising artists of his generation. Jitish Kallat’s work, imbued with autobiographical, political and artistic references, forms a narrative of the cycle of life in a rapidly changing India. Weaving together strands of sociology, biology and archaeology, the artist takes an ironic and poetic look at the altered relationship between nature and culture.

He began his career as a director before moving to a purely artistic practice that employs a range of media, including video, installation, photography and sculpture.
