These days, Shaunak Mahbubani—who prefers to be declared as a drifting curator—is active curating a altered event. At a time aback the anomalous affiliation is active through an abashing period—with the addition of the Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill, declared by anomalous rights activists as “regressive and half-hearted”, and The Surrogacy (Regulation) Bill, 2019, which absolutely excludes same-sex couples—Mahbubani, 29, capital to anticipate of means for it to appear together, annals a beef and artlessly affectation analytical questions.

So, calm with babysitter Vidisha Saini, theycame up with the abstraction of a “Queer Futures Potluck Party”, an accessible alarm to “performers, artists…acrobats, unicorns and all others”, aloft genres and disciplines, to present assignment about affluent histories of aberration in South Asia and dreams for a anomalous future. “We were admiring to the abstraction of the affair as a space. So abounding times, new access are artificial and political solidarities are bidding at abode parties. Why not accompany this architecture into a cultural space?” asks Mahbubani, who will host this “party” at the Goethe-Institut, Delhi, on 7 September, which is accessible to all.
One year afterwards the Supreme Court decriminalized consensual sex amid adults of the aforementioned sex, Mahbubani says: “We capital to booty this moment to bless the continued attempt together. And alongside that, additionally contemplate the future. Do we appetite to abide on the aisle of what has been laid bottomward by Western anomalous movements or coin a approaching based on our arena realities?”
In the accomplished year or so, the abode on anomalous identities in the Indian arts and ability amplitude has become added visible. There is a renewed anniversary of earlier artists such as Bhupen Khakhar and Sunil Gupta, who accept been at the beginning of the gay rights movement in India, as able-bodied as adolescent LGBTQ choir such as Tejal Shah, Aryakrishnan R., Sandip Kuriakose and Renuka Rajiv ambidextrous with the accountable of sexuality. Curators and artists from the affiliation are aggravating to add nuances to the discourse: attractive at gender fluidity, for instance, or attractive at assortment aural anomalous identities, instead of appendage them calm beneath the LGBTQ umbrella, or affective aloft animal character to altercate intersections of anomalous art with feminism, caste, chic and religion.
According to Mahbubani, it was in the aboriginal 2000s that the appellation “intersectionality” seeped into the all-around abode about gender and identity. One of the bigger advocates of this was American civilian rights advocate Kimberlé Crenshaw, who came up with the approach of overlapping amusing identities. In India, the abstraction was taken up by artists and ability theorists. “As artists and as a people, we charge to acknowledgment this difficult but all-important question: How do you authority multiplicities aural yourself? How does one attending at the broadcast abstraction of gender through one’s work, and of not putting bodies in boxes?” says Mahbubani, who has explored this angle in shows such as Fondle, at the Mumbai Art Room in 2018, which created a amphitheater ambience and questioned the assorted factors that bedeviled amusing interactions aural it. “I don’t see myself applicable into either a macho or changeable box. I don’t appetite to alteration absolutely into the adverse gender. But I don’t appetite to be boxed into the specificities. The catechism is what is this added space, and how can we bigger accept it?”
AN INCLUSIVE PLATFORM
In 1986, Bhupen Khakhar apparent a ample painting, Two Men In Benares, at Chemould Gallery, Mumbai. The work, depicting two macho nudes in a abutting embrace, was advised acutely adventurous for its time, and its advertise met with agitated protests, with acute threats to gallerist Kekoo Gandhy. It’s addition amount that Khakhar’s “confessional painting”, which fabricated him one of the aboriginal Indian artists to accede his animal orientation, fetched ₹22.39 crore at a contempo Sotheby’s bargain blue-blooded Coups de Coeur: The Guy And Helen Barbier Family Collection, ambience a new almanac for the artist. The 1986 show, however, was an archetype of aloof how angry the action to anomalous identities was in India.
One ability anticipate attitudes would accept afflicted since. Cut to 2012, aback anomalous artisan Balbir Krishan organized a abandoned appearance of paintings, Out Actuality And Now, at the Lalit Kala Akademi, Delhi, featuring a set of macho nudes. “When I was installing my works, artists alive in added galleries, and some of my friends, came by to admonishment me: ‘Families with accouchement will appear to see the show. What will they say!’” recounts Krishan, 45, who is now based in Albany, New York state, and lives with his husband, Michael.
In animosity of all the naysayers, the appearance had a acknowledged opening, but adversity addled a few canicule later—it was vandalized by a masked assailant. “He destroyed my work. Not aloof that, he pushed me to the attic and kicked me. Aback I was young, I absent both legs aloft the knees during an accident, because of which I abrasion prosthetics. During the attack, those came off and I could do annihilation but watch helplessly,” he recalls over a buzz call.
Sunil Gupta, 65, whose assignment got apparent for the additional time in India abandoned in 2004, some two decades into his convenance (the Beheld Arts Gallery, Delhi, put up an exhibition curated by Radhika Singh), feels that alike in 2003-04, the bartering arcade amplitude was acutely conservative—the abstraction of both photography and aberration was new to them. The abandoned arresting face in this amplitude was Khakhar, who died in 2003 at the age of 69, and alike his assignment on macho nudes was not apparent widely.
There are too abounding such instances, authoritative both the artists and galleries alert of announcement in a white cube space. This is why anomalous art has been showcased abroad from the mainstream, in adherent and alternating spaces, for years. Or why artists such as Gupta and Balbir Krishan accept alleged to appearance at all-embracing galleries such as Frieze London and Hales Gallery, New York and London, area they can display their works in a defended environment.
“However, the 2018 copy of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale (KMB) was a seminal point for anomalous artists, who had never apparent in a white cube amplitude or a boilerplate art blow of this calibration in India,” says Mario D’Souza, 27, an absolute curator-writer who has formed with anomalous capacity for shows. One of the affidavit for this was that the blow was helmed by Anita Dube, who was not aloof the aboriginal woman babysitter in the biennale’s four-edition-long history but is aboveboard anomalous as well.

In a first, the biennale acclaimed the affiliation with a alternation of cautiously curated exhibitions such as Dissent And Desire, in which Gupta and Charan Singh brought calm 20 hidden histories of bodies from all walks of activity who usually do not get a belvedere to characterize their experiences. “The 2018 KMB offered a accessible appearance of a anatomy of artworks that were evolving, not yet finished, and were advancing conversations. It brought calm assorted choir appear an compassionate of aberration as an evolving faculty of cocky and confused aloft absolute assumptions,” says D’Souza.
Today, added institutions and festivals are aggravating to be inclusive, accouterment a belvedere for new and assorted voices. Jagdip Jagpal, director, India Art Fair, says the aggregation has showcased works by several gender non-conforming artists in the past, such as Khakhar, Gupta, Chitra Ganesh and Salman Toor, and is alive on an broadcast assuming arts programme. “Today, we see the way abode about gender is changing. In India, we are in the aboriginal stages of this movement. Slowly but surely, bodies are cogent their identity, whether in classrooms, beef rallies or through art.”
She cites the archetype of Renuka Rajiv’s appearance The Approaching Is Not My Gender, presented at the Vadehra Art Gallery, Delhi, by The Foundation for Indian Abreast Arts in June 2018, which was a distinct person’s announcement of trans/ non-binary actuality and invisibility. Or the murals on accessible barrio in Bengaluru, Mumbai and Delhi created by the Bengaluru-based Aravani Art Project, a aggregate of transwomen artists.
SUNIL GUPTA: THE ACTIVIST-ARTIST
There are several abreast artists who accept lent a able articulation to the abode on anomalous art, such as Tejal Shah, who created the impactful Hijra Fantasy series, with auto bodies assuming their desires and dressed up as Cleopatra and Yashoda. Some of these choir don’t necessarily consistently barrage from the community—Dayanita Singh, for instance, had her acquaintance Mona Ahmed, a transgender, at the affection of her 2001 photo book.
However, the best constant active articulation in the Indian anomalous art amplitude is been Sunil Gupta. “(His) accurate assignment over the aftermost 30 years is an autobiographical affidavit of a life’s agitation with issues of gender, changeable and displacement, and, aback the analysis in 1995, HIV/AIDS,” writes author-curator Radhika Singh in the article Pre-Raphaelites Re-Visited : Narratives Of A Gay Life.
Gupta, who was built-in in Delhi and whose ancestor hails from Mundia Parmar in Uttar Pradesh, confused to Montreal in the backward 1960s for his bachelor’s amount and again to New York, afore activity to England. In 1989, he co-founded Autograph as an affiliation of atramentous photographers and again helped set up the Organisation for Beheld Arts to actualize an compassionate of culturally assorted practices. Aback then, he has alternate in 90 all-embracing abandoned and accumulation exhibitions, such as Area Three Dreams Cantankerous at Whitechapel Gallery, London. Crossing Lines, Constructing Home is advancing up at the Harvard Art Museum from 6 September-5 January.
“My antecedent assignment was about gay identities that I had apparent in the West as a teenager, and the complete abridgement of it in art history either in the West or in India. No one capital to allocution about sex in India at all,” he says, in a buzz chat from London. Usually, in the authoritative of any affectionate of art, you analysis and body on article that exists. Gupta, however, could acquisition annihilation that fit the bill. “And then, in the West, AIDS came forth as a gay plague. Though in India it wasn’t associated with homosexuality, it affected the government to allocution about sex and sex workers,” he says.
The antecedent reactions to his appearance at the Beheld Arts Arcade in 2004 prompted Gupta to move aback to India and analyze questions of character here. In the process, art and activism became intertwined in his practice. “Everyone thinks they are the abandoned anomalous bodies in the world. Similarly, aback I accustomed in the Indian art world, I anticipation it can’t aloof be me authoritative these pictures about the subject. So, I abutting Nigah, an activist accumulation ambidextrous with anomalous rights, to use ability as a average to actuate discussions,” says Gupta.
For some time, Gupta alike had a cavalcade in a Delhi advertisement about activity as a gay man, appropriate abutting to a aliment page. “There were recipes and again there was me. I absolutely admired it,” he laughs. But the publisher’s wife saw the cavalcade and it was discontinued. He feels the media has generally bootless the community, as it doesn’t acquiesce for chargeless discussion.
“Over the years, the attributes of my assignment ability accept changed. But the amount questions haven’t afflicted much. Bodies misunderstand that artwork is an acknowledgment to a question. It is not. It is artlessly putting advanced a catechism in a altered way, adapted with a above context,” says Gupta.

NO SINGLE QUEER IDENTITY
Practices such as Gupta’s accept resulted in an advancing accomplishment to change accepted definitions and go aloft the binaries that exclude artists from art abode and history. For instance, the Godrej Ability Lab in Mumbai, an beginning amplitude which started nine years ago, has been showcasing assorted narratives about the anomalous affair as allotment of an advancing chat about the alteration face of Indian art and culture. “Intersectionality is acute to aggregate we do. So, in January this year, as allotment of Pride Ages Mumbai we captivated a alternation of commutual LGBTQ events— our aboriginal anomalous programming afterwards the account bottomward of Area 377. The abstraction was to attending at conversations that were not demography abode in this space,” says Parmesh Shahani, who active the lab.
One of the contest Queeristan: Amount and Aberration looked at the affair of caste, which has generally been brushed abreast by the anomalous movement for two decades. The added blow was centred about “many anomalous Indias”, which looked aloft the metros of Mumbai and Delhi and accomplished out to a array of bodies from bank 2 towns. “Or aback we did the Clearing Museum (in Mumbai in June) recently, Sagolsem Pavel Metei of the Chinky Homo Activity (an album of the anomalous of North-East) talked about the circle of aberration and migration,” says Shahani.
Festivals such as Gender Bender, organized by Bengaluru-based artists’ accumulation Sandbox Collective, accept witnessed participation, through their grants, from aloft the metros as well. For instance, in the 2018 copy captivated in August, Imphal-based Meitei auto artisan Santa Khurai presented a documentary on aboriginal auto accouchement from Manipur’s Meitei community, their lived experiences, and the challenges they face.
Gender Bender was started bristles years ago by the Sandbox Aggregate to focus on gender through new perspectives in art. Over the years, however, the blueprint has afflicted dramatically, with beheld artists from aloft the country authoritative their attendance felt. For the 2019 edition, which assured recently, the aggregation alike got applications from Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh. “The actuality that there are 200 applicants from aloft the country alive on assorted aspects of gender, including anomalous identities, itself is incredible,” she says.
Sandbox additionally produces a abreast achievement alleged Queensize with Mandeep Raikhy, which was created as a acknowledgment to Area 377. Played out on a charpoy, this choreographic analysis took the anatomy of a abundant abstraction amid two men. “We accept taken that to the North-East, Bhopal, Kanpur and Ahmedabad to alpha a chat about Area 377 afore it was apprehend down,” says Pathak.
There are several important festivals organised by the LGBTQ affiliation itself that abode anomalous identities such as the Anomalous Arts Movement India (QAMI) Habba, the KASHISH Mumbai All-embracing Anomalous Film Festival and the BLR Anomalous Film Fest.
FIERCELY PERSONAL PRACTICES
In March, Delhi’s Lodhi Colony was attestant to a altered sight. A accumulation of trans-women artists from the Aravani Art Activity could be apparent creating a active mural on a bank abutting to a primary academy as allotment of the St art India Festival 2019. While the assignment was evocative in itself, it is the action that played out like a achievement of sorts. At first, the associates of the neighbourhood watched from afar, alert of the attendance of auto artists. It was the accouchement who bankrupt the ice, assuming questions to the accumulation and arena with them whenever the artists adequate on mats. Gradually, bodies started bringing them tea and agreeable in ablaze banter. The final assignment was not aloof the acme of an abstraction but additionally represented these baby moments of achievement and change.
The activity was started by muralist Poornima Sukumar eight years ago to see how bodies would accede if auto bodies afraid out in accessible spaces accomplishing allusive activities rather than those they are banal for. One of the auto artists, Shanthi Munisamy, additionally a poet, has been blogging about her adventure with Aravani and talks abundantly about the aboriginal activity she alternate in—painting a mural on the bank of a government academy about Kanakpura Road, Bengaluru—and the antecedent abhorrence of actuality ashamed in the attendance of children.
“(But when) I had casting my besom achievement on to the bank a accomplished burst of affections flowered,” she writes on the Aravani blog. And aback the acceptance aggregate around, calling her “Ma’am” and allurement her questions, her joy was boundless.

Today, 35 auto women are associated with the activity and accept corrective murals at Facebook’s and Levi’s’ India address in Bengaluru as well. “We aboriginal formed with them in 2016 during the St art India Festival. Over eight years, their convenance has acquired and become acutely cogent to the art abode in India. There is a faculty of empowerment as they are now compassionate their own role as a accordant allotment of association and not ambuscade abaft a curtain. Some of them accept taken this up as a career as well,” says Giulia Ambrogi, co-founder and curator, St art India Foundation.
In 2012, the annihilation of a adolescent transgender activist, Maria, who was built-in as Anil Sadanandan, in the harbour abode of Tangasseri in Kollam city, Kerala, larboard a abysmal appulse on 37-year-old artisan Aryakrishnan R. Besides suspending a 16ft-long brim from the roof of Aspinwall House, one of the venues at the Kochi Biennale, the artisan additionally created a active safe amplitude for an LGBTQ person, with a bed, books, paintings and more, alleged Sweet Maria Monument, inflecting it with the lived history of the activist. Assorted bodies from altered walks of activity active this space, abacus their belief and conversations. “This became a amplitude for solidarity, affliction and for aggregate histories. It became a amplitude area abandoning of histories could be prevented,” says D’Souza.
He calls Aryakrishnan’s convenance a attenuate one, as it is action-based and looks at a way forward: at the possibilities and acumen of a acceptable safe amplitude for the community. And now, as a hat tip to the acceptation of their practice, Khoj Studios has appear Aryakrishnan as one of the awardees for the new socially affianced art activity admission in peri-urban spaces.
While Aryakrishnan’s convenance is collaborative, there are others who are angrily personal, or those who abject their assignment on abutting observations of interpersonal relationships. Booty Krishan, for instance. His aesthetic change mirrors the adventure of self-discovery. Krishan’s aboriginal works are apparent by the use of atramentous and white drawings, generally absolute up to huge prints, to accurate affliction and anger. Sexually abused as a adolescent and abandoned in relationships as a adolescent developed by men who straddled bifold lives as gay men and affiliated householders, Krishan caked this black into his works. While he aesthetic his address over time and took to balloon colours in his ample new media work, a assertive bareness began to edge into his creations.
Khakhar’s adventure had a abysmal appulse on Krishan’s practice—he acquainted that if the artisan could accept created macho nudes way aback in the 1980s, why couldn’t he in 2011-12? Why was his assignment was attacked in 2012? “I was broken. But that moment was life-changing. Bodies like photographers Ram Rahman and Sunil Gupta stood by me. Added and added associates of the LGBTQ affiliation accomplished out to me and I accomplished I was not alone,” says Krishan.
Soon after, he did his aboriginal accumulation appearance in the US with Myna Mukherjee’s newly-opened arcade Engendered—and there was no attractive back. He begin adulation with his partner, Michael Giangrasso, a teacher, and it wrought a transformation in his art. “I had spent all my anger. I was calmer, added abiding of myself. I confused aloft changeable and my art became added political and social,” he says.
Then there are beheld artists like Kuriakose, whose convenance examines ability structures—both acknowledged and social—in affiliation with account of masculinity, gender, and animal identity. In a May 2019-conversation with multi-disciplinary artist, Lodoe Laura, he talked about his 2009 work, Woh Bhi Line Ka Tha. For that he anchored himself aural canoeing spaces, which become sites for gay animal and affectionate encounters. The alternation included agenda prints and a book with transcripts of conversations in these spaces.
THINKING BEYOND ‘HE’ OR ‘SHE’
Gupta and Mahbubani say things accept afflicted gradually aback the Pride months started actuality acclaimed aboriginal in Kolkata in 1999. In fact, it has now become fashionable, at atomic in assertive aristocratic quarters, to allocution about anomalous identities. According to Mahbubani, this has led to a assertive area of aberration acceptable added calmly understood, comestible and alike commodified—with every cast absent to put a balloon sticker on their articles during Pride month, with ice-cream wrappers antic the balloon colours, aliment aggregators ablution appropriate campaigns or aggregation logos antic the Pride hues.
Popular ability has helped too, with absolute Indian films centred about changeable bringing the accountable into people’s homes. “Made In Heaven is a abundant archetype of this,” says Gupta. Mahbubani concurs, and believes that with elders and parents watching films such as Brokeback Mountain (2005) and Moonlight (2016), Kapoor & Sons (2016) there is a assertive artlessness to the abstraction of gay love.
Within the art world, few bodies in positions of ability and bureau are now attempting to bigger accede animal variations. According to Rajiv, absolute change is axiomatic in absolute life, the way addition is alien to addition person, or in a accessible setting, or how addition is accounting with pronouns of their choice—in adjustment to accomplish a axial aspect of their absoluteness visible.

Rajiv, 33, feels that the Indian art apple could acceleration up its absorption in acclamation these needs, but bodies are aggravating to be added acute about how they represent and amusement bodies alfresco the cis female/cis macho bubble, so conceivably there is hope. “However, what is still actual afflictive for bodies is the abstraction of auto and non-binary bodies like us. If, as artists and practitioners, we cantankerous gender boundaries in a allusive way, that makes bodies uncomfortable,” says Mahbubani. “Let’s achievement that changes too.”
