A Lost Future: Shezad Dawood / The Otolith Group/Matti Braun

  • through January 28, 2019
  • The Rubin Museum of Art, New York
This three-part exhibition challenges existing histories and speculative futures across cultures in Bengal—a culturally rich region divided between present-day India and Bangladesh. The three contemporary artists featured in the exhibition, including London-based artist Shezad Dawood, engage an evocative range of mediums that spans virtual reality to an immersive lake along with painting, film, sculpture and photography. Through rich storytelling, this exhibition explores themes of virtuality, modernity and world-making in ways that are universal as well as interconnected and specific to this region.
