Chinar Shah, Apr - Jun 19

6 April – 30 June 2019

Following on from the first part of her residency in 2018, Chinar Shah will rejoin Bluecoat from Bangalore, India in May.

Shah will be developing research in the public spaces at Bluecoat as well as across digital platforms. Shah’s work responds to economic and social injustices, particularly in India, and her research at Bluecoat forms part of the wider Interrogating Intersectionality research group with Liverpool Hope University, FACT and Christ University Bangalore.

Born in Ahmedabad and based in Bangalore, Shah is known for her photographic works, which often spill over into online platforms such as eBay. Shah also works as a curator, exploring the potential of exhibition making in domestic settings. The artist is course leader for Photography at Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore and is also known for her writing on photography. She co-edited Photography in India published by Bloomsbury in 2018.

She has exhibited in solo exhibitions at Mumbai Art Room, Mumbai in 2017 and G159, Bangalore in 2015. Shah has exhibited in group exhibitions including shows at Galleri Box, Gothenburg in 2018, Tate Liverpool, Liverpool in 2015 and Max Mueller Bhavan, Mumbai in 2013.
