Curated by Tunty Chauhan and Deeksha Nath, the group exhibition marks the 25th anniversary of the gallery and serves as a tribute to the enduring relationship with the artists.
The landmark exhibition brings together the works of thirty-five multi-generational artists who have had an ongoing reciprocal relationship with Gallery Threshold. The theme of self-portraiture unites the diversity of artists’ practices supported by the gallery. Comprising paintings, sculptures, installations, photography and mixed media, the works transcend mere representations of physical appearances, delving deep into the narratives and vignettes from their own life stories.
Unparalleled in the scale and depth of its examination of the theme the exhibition fulfills two objectives: to visit the idea of self-representation and to celebrate the strong bonds forged between the gallery and the artists, acknowledging their artistic excellence and the lasting impact they have made within the art community. The curators embrace a broader understanding of self-representation that encompasses figurative and abstract works, as well as alliterative and metaphorical approaches.
