AIS OPEN: Now That We Are Free?
Time & Location
About the Event
Inspired by the anniversaries of South Asian independence in recent years, this specially curated exhibition aims to explore what freedom looks like, feels like, and what it means to have attained it. As the Covid-19 crisis forces us into isolation and separation, taking away many freedoms globally, AIS OPEN also asks how this new social hurdle forces us to understand and appreciate freedom differently?
This inaugural AIS OPEN helps to mark the 10th edition of An Indian Summer, which began in 2011.
