The Sindhu Project: Enigma of Roots is a multi-site exhibition debuting exclusively at the South Asia Institute in Chicago on June 10 – August 15,2021

The Sindhu Project embodies responses of artists Mahwish Chishty and Gunjan Kumar to explorations of archaeological sites and artifacts in the expansive Sindhu (Indus) watershed, a geographical region stretching across northwest India and much of Pakistan. Through parallel journeys involving familial roots and enigmas of inhabited places across time, Chishty and Kumar bring contemporary art-making into dialogue with excavated forms that contribute to imagining this ancient riverine landscape.

Meet the Artists

The Sindhu Project juxtaposes the sleek amplitude and rhythmic energy of Chishty’s suspended etched acrylic installations with the subtle dimensionality and tactile sensuousness of Kumar’s organic works. This sonorous exhibition invites visual and conceptual contemplation of intertwined roots reaching beyond the Sindhu river basin.
