Artists from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan have joined forces for an exhibition showing a unity of ideas and visions spanning both cultures in spite of historical, political and religious divides.
The show at London’s Asia House Gallery, titled Step Across this Line for Salman Rushdie’s essay collection of the same name, was curated by New Delhi-based Deeksha Nath who says she functions as an “outsider” having never visited Pakistan or Bangladesh.
The show explores national identity, colonialism, the similarities between enemy states and the entwined histories of Bangladesh, India and Pakistan.
The artists exhibiting are Naeem Mohaiemen, Wakil Rahman, Saira Ansari, Mehreen Murtaza, Abhishek Hazra, Priya Sen, Hasan Elahi, Unum Babar, Firoz Mahmud , Malik Sajad, Gauri Gill, CAMP (Shaina Anand and Ashok Sukumaran) and Asim Waqif.
Step Across this Line is at Asia House Gallery until 22 October 2011
