UR/Unreserved is an initiative of our bangaloREsidency host and partner Maraa, along with other cultural partners - an interrogation of identity in its variating textures, nuances, silences and expressions through the lens of 14 artists who travelled over 10,000 km creating interactions on long distance trains.
Getting Unreserved is a unique, non-formal sharing of the discoveries made during the course of that journey. The showcase is the culmination of a two-month arts based project that attempted to explore and create work around questions and notions of identity. The work travelled through Assam, Kashmir, Kerala and Karnataka. Preparations are on for a pan-India tour of the travelling exhibition to share the learning at a time when identities grow increasingly contested in India and the world.
You are invited to wander through the sound, pictures, stories and questions that were collected through the interactions.
The evening will be peppered with little performance-sharings, with the main sharing happening at 7.00 p.m.
