Bhupen Khakhar exhibition opens in London

Today, Tate Modern will present the first international retrospective of Indian artist Bhupen Khakhar (1934-2003) since his death. Renowned for his vibrant palette, unique style and bold examination of class and sexuality, Khakhar played a central role in modern Indian art but was also a key international figure in 20th century painting. This exhibition will bring together the artist’s work from across five decades and collections around the world, including major works on canvas, luminous watercolour paintings and experimental ceramics. The exhibition runs in London until Novemeber, 6 when it will move to the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in Berlin.

This exhibition is part of a partnership between Tate and Deutsche Bank spanning several years, which supports exhibitions at Tate Modern with a particular focus on art from Africa and Asia. The programme launched in September 2014, when Deutsche Bank KunstHalle presented Meschac Gaba: Museum of Contemporary African Art, a major acquisition for Tate’s collection. BhupenKhakhar: You Can’t Please All is the second exhibition in this partnership, to be followed by a third in 2017.

Friedhelm Hütte, Global Head of Art, Deutsche Bank: "Bhupen Khakhar is an excellent choice for the second collaboration between Tate and the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle. In the exhibitions that we have staged together we are especially interested in attracting a new audience to non-Western positions that have had a strong influence on the
international art scene and so Deutsche Bank is proud to be sponsoring the exhibition in London.”
