Click to enlargeEVERYTHING WE DO IS MUSIC
Nov 30, 2017 - Mar 4, 2018
A major new exhibition that explores how Indian classical music has inspired modern and contemporary artists.
 
Everything we do is music, curated by Shanay Jhaveri, traces a long history: from early Indian miniature painting (Ragamalas) through to drawings, animations and video works from the present day. Including works by pivotal Indian and Pakistani artists such as Nasreen Mohamedi and Lala Rukh, the exhibition will feature a number of works previously unseen in the UK. It will present newly commissioned pieces by Michael Müller and Sarnath Banerjee alongside works by contemporary artists such as Shahzia Sikander and KM Madhusudhanan. The exhibition will also explore the influence of Indian classical music on important American artists such as Lee Mullican and Marian Zazeela, and its wider influence on western popular and counterculture.
