'Woman Is As Woman Does' celebrates the CSMVS Museum's centenary and 75 years of India's Independence. The exhibition proposes an inter-generational mapping of 27 women artists who have engaged with postcolonial India’s raging political and cultural problems. It presents five generations of practitioners, the late Zarina Hashmi (1937-2020) being the oldest and Al-Qawi Nanavati (b. 1995) the youngest, with an emphasis on female artistic labour—‘doing’ as achieving the impossible, whether incrementally or through radical gestures.
The show is displayed over two galleries, the Premchand Roychand Gallery and the Jehangir Nicholson Gallery until 16th October 2022.
