In 2017, the Partition of India is marked by its 70th anniversary. Drawing on the readings of departure and partial histories, the exhibition Part Narratives commemorates this event, and brings the art production that surrounded it within museum and art discourse. At the same time it turns our attention to issues of migration as they beset the world at present, to the long shadow of Partition and its passage through time.

The show is on till the 19th of September , 2017. For more information, visit the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum website at www.bdlmuseum.org.
