Following the Box

An innovative contemporary art exhibition and a visual dialogue between American and Indian artists over time.

In 1945, an American soldier stationed in India took a series of photographs depicting everyday life in West Bengal. Nearly sixty years later, artists and curators Jerri Zbiral and Alan Teller discovered a box filled with these photographs at a Chicagoland estate sale. After tracing the photographs back to India, Zbiral and Teller invited 10 contemporary Indian artists to respond to the original images through painting, film, graphic illustration, folk art, and conceptual art. Each work explores the elusive nature of memory, political and military histories, and cultural identity. LUMA is pleased to be the first museum in the United States to host this exhibition.
