JAMM Art, in association with 1X1 Art Gallery and Empty 10, is pleased to start the art season with a solo exhibition by Simrin Mehra Agarwal, curated by Caterina Corni.
Born in 1979 in Kolkata, Simrin Mehra Agarwal currently lives and works in Milan and New Delhi. She has completed a BFA and an MFA in Painting from the Delhi College of Art and obtained a diploma in Photography from Triveni Kala Sangam in Delhi.
A descendant of the royal family of Jhargram that has a legacy spanning 500 years, Mehra Agarwal grew up hearing stories of her family’s past glory, power and wealth. Her work examines the history and transitional phase of royalty from grandeur to decline, from the medieval to the post-colonial era, from monarchy to democracy.
She has participated in a number of workshops and residencies including Tate Modern in London, INSA Art Centre in Seoul and the World Trade Centre in Jakarta. She has held solo exhibitions in Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Milan and participated in group shows in Singapore, London, Bangkok, Bangalore, Vienna, New York and Dubai.
