Photography Exhibition “Fantasy”
Curated by Sunil Gupta
October 24 to November 1, 10am to 6pm

“Queer subcultures the world over have been the repository of
fantastical other lives. In the face of oppressive realities they have
famously responded by honing their powers of expressive
imagination; be it in language or dress codes. Images have played a very significant role in this. At times like now, post Article 377,
there is a shift in societal norms that empower us to make visible our desires. How would you visualize your queer fantasies? “ – Nigah
