The Generation in Transition exhibition presents the artworks of a young generation of artists of Indian origin, living and working in India, as well as in America and Europe. It is the first extensive showcase of contemporary art from this region presented in Central Europe in recent years. For about twenty years now, India has been experiencing an enormous economic and technological development, which has had a substantial impact on social structures. This change, with its positive and negative aspects, is frequently reflected in the works of contemporary artists, especially in those of the youngest ones who have grown up in these interesting times of transition.

I recently attended this exhibition at Zacheta. Particular favourites were this film by Bharat Sikka – The Ceremony.
On a purely fun level, I enjoyed this piece which was a small house, like a wendy house, but when entered had mirrored walls, floor and ceiling making it seem infinitely large. It was also a great excuse to take some photos.
Also another thing worth mentioning is the epic sculpture/architecture at the back of this building in Old Town.
