Between One Shore and Several Others
1x1 Dubai is pleased to present a solo show by Vivek Vilasini. Between One Shore and Several Others is an enquiry into the transmigrations of concepts, their assimilation, internalisation, and the evolution of identities, an ongoing process embedded in everyday social practices. Ideas that shape one’s identity are usually local – local places, local customs, local histories – but in today’s world the availability of alternatives allows one to escape one’s origin.

The Progressive Artists’ Group, a collective of some of the most iconic modern artists of India, formed in 1947 in Bombay, challenging the conservative artistic establishments of their times. The result was a beautiful synthesis of Indian art history with modernist styles such as post-impressionism, cubism and expressionism.
