For its presentation in the FotoFest 2018 Biennial, INDIA: Contemporary Photography and New Media Art, CAMH will showcase photographs by collaborators Sunil Gupta and Charan Singh, in the exhibition Dissent and Desire.

Their documentary color photographs chronicle contemporary LGBTQ+ life in Delhi, India. Gupta and Singh’s project masterfully enables us to witness the intimate, ordinary, and daring moments of seventeen diverse individuals and couples. Gupta and Singh have created a rich and tender mosaic of the ways in which this set of sitters navigate life, work, and love in a country where anti-sodomy laws dating back to the British Empire were only recently struck down in 2009 and then were restored after the Supreme Court reversed the ruling in 2013. CAMH will present 40 photographs by Gupta and Singh, as well as a video documenting the narratives of some of the individuals recurring in their photographic work. In addition to being a participating artist, Gupta is the Lead Curator for the FotoFest 2018 Biennial.
