Viewing Nalini Malani: My Reality is Different

Lose yourself in the National Gallery for the first exhibition as part of their Contemporary Fellowship programme, supported by Art Fund. Encompassing over forty metres of wall, artist Nalini Malani presents 25 striking new animations that immerse the viewer in a panorama of nine large video projections, played in a continuous loop. Classical stories have been transformed by hand-drawn animations, made using an iPad, that reveal and conceal different aspects of the paintings in both collections to rediscover them from an alternative, and critical point of view. Embodying the role of the artist as a social activist, Malani puts the Western canon under pressure in these animations where traditional art history and its European figures are no longer the only source of meaning.

The National Gallery Contemporary Fellowship is supported by Art Fund, which enabled an open call to public collecting institutions outside London to become the partner institution. The National Gallery’s Modern and Contemporary Advisory Panel selected the Holburne Museum in Bath as the partner institution for the inaugural Fellowship. The Holburne Museum will have the opportunity to acquire a work which has been created as part of the Fellowship.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated 144-page hard-cover catalogue with newly commissioned articles by Mieke Bal, Will Cooper, Zehra Jumabhoy, Daniel Herrmann, Nalini Malani and Priyesh Mistry.
