Modernism on the Ganges: Raghubir Singh Photographs

October 11, 2017 - January 2, 2018

"Modernism on the Ganges: Raghubir Singh Photographs" will situate Singh's photographic work at the intersection of Western modernism and traditional South Asian modes of picturing the world. It will feature 85 photographs by Singh in counterpoint with works by his contemporaries—friends, collaborators, fellow travelers—as well as examples of the Indian court painting styles that inspired him.

The exhibition will trace the full trajectory of Singh's career from his early work as a photojournalist in the late 1960s through his last unpublished projects of the late 1990s. Using a handheld camera and color slide film, he recorded India's dense milieu in complex frieze-like compositions teeming with incident, fractured by reflections, and pulsating with opulent color. This exhibition is part of Asia Contemporary Art Week, October 5-26 in New York City.

Raghubir Singh received an ACC Fellowship in 1990 to meet with photographers, curators, and critics, and to pursue creative work in photography in the United States.

Bombay, an exhibition of street photography by Raghubir Singh, pulsates with dramatic compositions and Singh’s characteristically controlled use of color. The exhibition focuses on one of the artist’s most significant bodies of work which, made in the early 1990s, led to his book Bombay: Gateway of India.

Raghubir Singh received an ACC Fellowship in 1990 to travel to the U.S. from India for creative work.
