• Exhibition Opening: Artist’s Rooms Prabhakar Pachpute

Join us for the exhibition opening of ‘Artist’s Rooms: Prabhakar Pachpute’ with the artist. Working in site-specific, large-scale drawing and sculpture, Prabhakar Pachpute explores ideas around industry, land and labour. Pachpute’s Artist’s Room at Jameel Arts Centre focuses on Indian farmers’ campaigns for land rights and survival, and how the farmers use their bodies in performative ways during the act of protesting. This installation is a continuation of ‘Sea of Fists’, a project that evolves and transforms with each iteration.

Drawn largely from the Art Jameel Collection, ‘Artist’s Rooms’ is a series of solo exhibitions by influential, innovative artists, with particular focus on practitioners from the Middle East, Asia and Africa. These capsule shows are collaborative and curated in dialogue with the artist.

The exhibition is on from September 21, 2019 – February 15, 2020.
