When Is Space?
An Exhibition on Contemporary Architecture
Curated and designed by Rupali Gupte & Prasad Shetty
What happens when a mathematical logic is mobilised to (re)invent space? – does it provide a hint to the logic of the universe? What happens when built-form typologies are interrogated? – what new forms of living get produced? Can there be an urban form that can afford the multiplicity of the collective? – what are its enabling infrastructures?
With a conceptual ambition of tying together the visions of the astronomer-king Sawai Jai Singh, ideas of the architect Charles Correa and concerns of contemporary space-making practices; this exhibition invites architects and artists to respond to the above provocations. With an affective landscape of spatial interrogations, Jawahar Kala Kendra is imagined as a laboratory for experiments in making space.
