Nalini Malani. You Don’t Hear Me
19/06 - 20/11/2020
The Fundació Joan Miró and "la Caixa" Foundation present You Don’t Hear Me, Nalini Malani’s first museum exhibition in Spain
As the winner of the seventh edition of the Joan Miró Prize in 2019, the Indian artist has been fully committed to developing a project worthy of such a distinction. The exhibition, conceived and curated by Nalini Malani and Martina Millà, invites visitors to explore some of the main topics at the core of Malani’s practice over the decades. Specifically, the show focuses on her untiring defence of the silenced and the dispossessed all over the world, particularly women. The selected works highlight the rich complexity of Malani’s output, based on immersive installations and a multilayered imagery which comes from a profound knowledge of ancient mythologies and an acute awareness and condemnation of contemporary injustice. You Don’t Hear Me brings together some of the most important works from the past five decades of the artist’s career and offers a unique dialogue between Malani’s early films from the late 1960s, paintings series and installations from the past fifteen years, and her most recent digital animations. For the occasion, the artist has made site-specific wall drawings in the exhibition galleries, ephemeral works that will be disappeared on the last day of the exhibition during an erasure performance.
