Vision Exchange: Divya Mehra

October 27, 2018 - January 27, 2019

Canadian artist Divya Mehra’s installation utilizes the Taj Mahal (the iconic cultural world heritage site built in Agra during the 17th Century to house the tomb of Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan’s favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal) as a point of departure. Mehra’s work is a sharp commentary on the way thousands of tourists interact with the mausoleum on a daily basis by diminishing it into a foreign backdrop for their social media stories.
