If we talk about France and India or India in France today, we have to talk about the exhibition Paris-Delhi-Bombay were 50 artists from India and France found the space to talk about India and the boom that the country is having today. It took place at Beaubourg as the temporal exhibition and it’s for sure an expression of contrasts, just like India is. It’s an invitation to discover this culture from the points of view of honesty and critique.We can start from the big and impressive accumulation of objects of Sudhod Gupta in his work “Ali Baba” that is the reflection of the Indian society that has overloads of people and consumption. We arrive at the detailed and contrasting work of Sunil Gawde, who makes us shiver when we discover that his flower necklaces is made of blades.

In between we discover the artist’s criticism of a society that certainly  still remains unfair and unequal, with freedoms that are still in question. Or at least it’s what the modern artist from France and India try to show to the country of  “Liberté, égalité, fraternité”.

Terrorism, religion, poverty, wealth, homosexuality, tradition and denunciation are just some of the subjects at the heart of the exhibition.

What I wonder is how an exhibition like this one would be seen in India, if it takes place there?
