As the country gears up to flex its art muscle at Art Mumbai 2023, two participating artists let us in on their critical engagement with their own work and the broader world of art

“When it comes to something as massive as trying to combat propaganda or creating dissent under authoritarian regimes, every person plays a different role. I would like to believe that each avenue has its impact, be it documenting, archiving, or actively participating. In the case of commercial art spaces, it is imperative that they contribute by actively creating a space for opposition. This can be done in different ways—it can be in giving space, in assisting resistance by hiring or supporting artists with voices, or by creating shows that actively contribute to the dissonance,” says multimedia artist Rah Naqvi. Their first solo show, ‘how many songs from a single note?’, opened at TARQ, Mumbai, last October, and utilised video installation, tapestry, drawings, paintings, and sculptures to highlight the significance of found family within the trans–queer existence during times of increased identity–based violence. This year, they will be exhibiting their work at Art Mumbai 2023, a first–of–its–kind art fair from November 16 to 19 in the city.
