Modernism on the Ganges: Raghubir Singh Photographs
Level 3, Third floor Center Block
One of India's most visionary and celebrated pioneers in colour photography, Raghubir Singh (1942–1999) was a prolific photographer whose creative style revealed the dramatic palette of India’s streets, places and peoples through a distinct lens. Tracing the full trajectory of his career from the late 1960s to his last unpublished projects of the late 1990s, this exhibition showcases the iconic depictions of Indian life and culture in vivid colour.
#MeToo & the Arts
Level 1, Thorsell Spirit House
Museums today are struggling with what to do when artists represented in their galleries are accused of sexual harassment or when artworks in their collections are viewed as problematic.
Located at the entrance to the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal in the Thorsell Spirit House and free to the public, #MeToo & the Arts examines how museums are engaging with issues raised since October 2017 when the #MeToo movement gained momentum in the wake of allegations made against a number of powerful men in the film industry. The display invites audiences to learn, reflect and consider their own questions and answers on the issues.
Live performance - The House that Whiteness Built
Level 1, Chen Court
Artist Divya Mehra and writer Amy Fung will be premiering a new collaboration that re-positions the cherished Canadian classic, Anne of Green Gables, in a slightly new light. As a fiercely independent and strong-headed woman, Anne is ostracized by her WASP community for simply being different. Unapologetic for her challenging opinions, work ethic, and dubious background, The House that Whiteness Built re-examines this beloved heroine through an intersectional lens of race, class and gender inequality that continues into the present moment.
Performances at 9:00 pm and Midnight. Run time: 30 minutes (approx.). Please note that space is limited.
Warning – This performance is intended for an adult audience only. Please note that it may contain adult language.
