India and the World: A History in Nine Stories


Museum Lecture Hall

This is a past event

Naman Ahuja, curator of Indian art at Jawaharlal Nehru University, discusses his recent exhibition India and the World, which presented extraordinary masterpieces to place Indian history in a global context. As Western museums have begun telling post-colonial narratives, this exhibition raises universal questions about the future of presenting national histories.
