Documenting history - DAY 751

Jitish Kallat is at the forefront of India's contemporary art movement and documents historical correspondence - a brief letter written by Gandhi to Hitler in 1939 urging him to reconsider his violent means. 

It is in line with some of his earlier works such as Public Notice (2003), Public Notice 2 (2007), and Public Notice 3 (2010) where a historic speech becomes a device for contemplation.

His exhibition is part of the JNAF and the CSMVS' efforts to engage with practitioners of modern and contemporary art.
