“Critical Mass” at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art is the first major show that will expose the Israeli public to the thriving contemporary Indian art scene. An exhibition of Indian art in Israel holds special interest in a local context, due to the range of affinities between the two countries and to the growing interest of Israelis in India and its culture. Both cultures share a preoccupation with conflicted identity and multifaceted social and political realities which provide a significant catalyst for artistic production. Bhalla’s photographic diptych, I was Not Waving I was Drowning, was included in this exciting exhibition curated by Tami Katz-Freiman and Rotem Ruff.
