Lecture by Nalini Malani at Centre Pompidou

Manjari Sihare shares details of a forthcoming lecture by Nalini Malani at the Centre Pompidou in Paris

Paris: The Centre Pompidou, Paris, will be hosting a lecture by Nalini Malani on May 22, 2013 as part of Vivo, an ongoing series dedicated to performance art, wherein an artist whose work is in the collection of the museum is invited to speak about his/her work and/or show a performance. Nalini Malani (b. 1946) pioneered  performance, video art and installation in India, and  is one of the major internationally recognized figures on the Indian art scene. Combining myths and legends of East and West, she creates timeless characters, heroines and mutants bearing signs of violence against women. Through these figures, the artist engages in a reflection on the excesses of capitalism and fanaticism, leading the viewer into the experience of confrontation between narrative and ancestral history. During this session, Nalini Malani will present an unpublished work on performance for the first time in France.
