Queer Anticipation: Sunil Gupta, Prem Sahib, and Jake Grewal in Conversation with Dr. Natasha Bissonauth

SOUTH SOUTH Talk

On 19 May 2021 art historian Dr. Natasha Bissonauth moderated a conversation between artists Sunil Gupta, Prem Sahib, and Jake Grewal. In this discussion the three London-based artists shared insights into their individual practices and offered an entryway into thinking and seeing through queer South Asian diasporic aesthetics. This conversation was in conjunction with the group show ‘On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous‘ at Jhaveri Contemporary – titled after Ocean Vuong’s much acclaimed novel – which had to unfortunately shut down early given COVID-19’s devastating second wave in India.
