Liminal Gaps

The Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre presents ‘Liminal Gaps’, a contemporary Indian art exhibition exploring the transitional and expanding boundaries of Indian culture and identity. Curated by Mafalda Millies Kahane and Roya Sachs with executive production by Elizabeth Edelman Sachs from TRIADIC, it is the Centre’s first exhibition to exclusively showcase Indian artists. The four acclaimed conceptual artists and art groups included in the show are Ayesha Singh, Raqs Media Collective, Asim Waqif, and Afrah Shafiq. ’Liminal Gaps’ will open at the Art House on March 31, 2024 and remain on view through June 9, 2024.

The unique group art show explores transitional spaces and transformational phases that are either physical, emotional or metaphorical. The exhibition is about thresholds, ultimately inviting audiences into new ways of looking at the familiar. Sprawling across all four floors of the Art House – the Cultural Centre’s dedicated visual art space – a multigenerational group of artists explores liminal gaps in architecture, time, space, nature, and technology. The experience is immersive, engaging the visitor through site- specific installations, interactive sonic experiences and video games.

“Liminal Gaps will encourage audiences to further explore Indian culture, inspired by the perspectives of some of the most masterful artists working today,” comments Isha Ambani. “As NMACC approaches its one-year anniversary, we felt it was important to host an exhibition that exclusively showcases Indian artists and carry on the Centre’s mission to elevate Indian culture on the global stage. We are so excited for this innovative, multigenerational group of artists to transform Art House and educate, delight, and surprise the public. Liminal Gaps is the latest instalment in a line of ground- breaking, top-tier exhibitions at the Centre.”
