 Artist-Valay SHENDE
Born in Nagpur in 1980, Valay Shende completed his BFA in Sculpture from Mumbai's Sir J.J.School of Art in 2004. Drawing from his surroundings, Shende uses his artistic voice to crystallize the challenges and dichotomies that characterize contemporary India, raising familiar concerns about class divide, capitalism, social hierarchy and religion. SHENDE’s preoccupations are usually immediate and commonplace, but his subtle interventions on his chosen subjects offer incisive commentary that is sensitive as it is hard-hitting. It is this ability to re-conceptualise even the most of charged symbols and objects that makes him such a potent artistic commentator on contemporary India.
SHENDE’s works are part of numerous private collections in India and overseas and has been included in such prestigious exhibitions as “Indian Highway” in collaboration with Serpentine Gallery, London and Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, Oslo at MAXXI Rome and MAC, Lyon; and “Finding India: Art for the New Century” at Museum for Contemporary Art, Taipei; “Frontier(s)” at the Department of Côtes d’Armor at Saint Brieuc, France; “Bombay Maximum City” at Lille 3000, France; “Made by Indians: Art on the Beach” at Galerie Enrico Navarra, St. Tropez; “Between Myth and History: Indian Video Art” at Tate Modern, London; and “Indian Video Art: History in Motion” at Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Fukuoka.
