I had the opportunity to discover the exhibition Paris-Delhi-Bombay at the Centre Pompidou, very rewarding and surprising, on the present Indian society, seen by Indian and French artists of the twenty-first century.
Through this exhibition, the Centre Pompidou invites us to question ourselves about the evolution of this country by addressing several themes : the policy (the foundations of democracy, the question of partition, rise of the middle class), the religion (beliefs, spirituality …), identity (national, regional, linguistic, sexual, caste-related …), urban (rural-urban migration, growth of megacities), crafts (traditions and modernity, heritage and current technologies) or home (family, marriage, emancipation of women, kitchen…).
More than two thirds of the works are productions made specifically for this event. I recommend this exhibition to all lovers of Indian folklore and those who would like to know better this enigmatic country, sharing a unforgettable moment, full of freshness and color.
Don’t hesitate to make a detour to India for a few hours !
