Event Details

Raqib Shaw

Thursday Lates Programme: 9 May 2013

7.00 - 8.00pm

The Exhibition Galleries, Manchester Art Gallery

A panel discussion, chaired by Professor David Lomas, will bring together several academic and cultural figures for a lively and informal debate about Raqib Shaw's work, covering such topics as sexuality, globalisation, and contemporary Indian visual culture.  

Raqib Shaw is an Indian-born, London-based artist who shot to fame in the international art world at the age of just 33. His opulent paintings and sculptures evoke the work of Old Masters such as Holbein and Bosch in their treatment of often unsettling subjects. But they also reflect the ornate style of Persian miniatures and Kashmiri and Japanese textiles. Beneath their beautiful jewel-like surface is a collection of dark and violent images inspired by ancient myths and religious tales from both East and Western tradition.

The exhibition is a collaboration between Manchester Art Gallery and Rudolfinum Prague. A full colour publication will accompany the exhibition with an essay by Professor David Lomas, University of Manchester.
