The Sahmat Collective: Art and Activism in India since 1989

@ Smart Museum of Art

5550 S. Greenwood Avenue

Opening Wednesday, February 13th, from 7 PM - 8:30 PM

On view through Sunday, June 9th

Explore art and activism in the world’s most populous democracy, India.

Organized by the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago, this exhibition introduces the vital work of Sahmat, a Delhi-based collective. Animated by the urgent belief that art can propel change and that culture can reach across boundaries, Sahmat has offered a platform for an expansive group of artists and collaborators to present powerful works of art that defend freedom of expression and battle intolerance within India’s often divisive political landscape.

Opening reception
Wednesday, February 13, 7-8:30 pm
Celebrate the power of art! The evening features performances by sitarist Rakae Jamil, the UChicago South Asian vocal ensemble Sugaraga, and the UChicago classical Indian dance group Apsara.

Free and open to the public.
