The Gallery’s first exhibition to focus on women artists with ties to South Asia.

Drawn primarily from the Gallery’s collection, Fearless includes major works by Huma Bhabha, Shilpa Gupta, Reena Saini Kallat, Nalini Malani, Pushpamala N + Clare Arni, Shahzia Sikander, Dayanita Singh, Adeela Suleman and Zarina.

The exhibition explores individual interpretations of politics and nationalism alongside the consequences of shifting borders. Each artist interrogates connections to diverse cultures and geographies, fearlessly questioning historical events, personal memories and their own identity.

Our points of reference, ideas and values are not confined by man-made borders
