Three Openings

  • A Selective Guide to the V&A's South Asia Collection

'Three Openings' is a text written in response to the erasures and opacity I encountered in the V&A's South Asia Collection, both in the physical gallery space, as well as the online collection.

The essay is commissioned and published by Delfina Foundation, as part of artist Avani Tanya's resiency at the V&A Museum. The book is available to purchase at Victoria & Albert Museum Bookshop as well as from the Delfina Foundation Website.
