Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Mumbai City Museum

‘Fieldnotes: tomorrow was here yesterday’ featured works by Jitish Kallat that found profound resonance within the space of the Museum. The artist appropriated the Museum’s architecture and intervened within the display cases creating new readings of the collection and the Museum's history. The idyll of the Museum, which represents the aspirations of the city's founding fathers, stood in sharp contrast to the battle for life that is played out on the city's streets and forms the underlying theme of Kallat's works.
