Shakti – Nikhil Chopra

7th December 2013 - 5th April 2014

Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Wolverhampton

Shakti (1)

Nikhil Chopra works across a number of media including performance, painting and photography to reflect upon personal histories and India’s colonial past. For Shakti, existing works by the artist are displayed alongside a curated selection of objects from the Gallery’s Indian decorative arts collection. The artist has also be undertaken a very special live performance over three days (28-30 November) in order to create new work – Nikhil Chopra: Space Oddity.

This exhibition is part of Shakti, a collaboration with Meadow Arts who have invited contemporary artists of Indian origin to respond to and interact with historic collections of South Asian art at venues across the Midlands and Wales, including Powis Castle and Kedleston Hall.
