In conjunction with the exhibition Visions from India, Pizzuti Collection welcomes Sudarshan Shetty for an artist talk at CCAD’s Canzani Center Auditorium.
Born in 1961 in Mangalore, India, Sudarshan Shetty makes monumental and charming work that pairs the macabre with the delightful. His work is full of binaries in concept and material, which upend expectations and encourage viewers to both step close and back away. Visions from India features seven works ranging from kinetic sculpture to installation, video and painting, making Shetty’s oeuvre a highlight within the exhibition.
Sudarshan Shetty completed his BFA in painting from the Sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai in 1985 and has since exhibited in India and internationally. His recent shows include Mimic Momento, Galerie Daniel Templon, Brussels, 2015; Constructs Constructions, curated by Roobina Karode, Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, New Delhi, 2015; A Passage, Staatliche Museum, Schwerin, Germany, 2015; every broken moment, piece by piece, GALLERYSKE, New Delhi, 2014; The pieces earth took away, Galerie Krinzinger, Vienna, 2012; Critical Mass, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Tel Aviv, 2012; Indian Highway, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, 2012; The Matters Within: New Contemporary Art of India, curated by Betti-Sue Hertz, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, 2011; Paris-Delhi-Bombay, Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2011; Sympathy for the Devil, curated by Walter Vanhaerents and Pierre-Olivier Rollin, Vanhaerents Art Collection, Brussels, 2011; India Inclusive, World Economic Forum, Davos, 2011; Contemplating the Void, curated by Nancy Spector, Solomon R.
