Anushka Rajendran

Anushka Rajendran is an independent curator and writer based in Delhi. Her ongoing curatorial research traces how the notion of public has acquired alternative significance to contemporary art in recent years, as well as the aesthetics of engagement within exhibition frameworks. This is informed by her previous research on responses by artists living in India in the 1990s to political and cultural trauma which has since expanded to encompass the South Asia region. She is the curator of Prameya Art Foundation, Delhi and was on the curatorial team for Kochi Muziris Biennale 2018 (India). Recent exhibitions include Phantasmapolis: Looking Back to the Future, Asian Art Biennial 2021 (Taiwan), Language is Migrant, Colomboscope 2022 (Sri Lanka), And yet the air was still stirring, Fundación Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Madrid, 2021 (Spain); Anatomies of Tongues, Chobi Mela Shunno, 2021 (Dhaka); Speculations on a New World Order, Shrine Empire, 2020 (New Delhi); and Between the Lines, Aomori Contemporary Art Centre, 2019 (Japan). She has published essays in several publications including anthologies and monographs from the South Asia region.
