In his monumental exhibition “Everything Is Inside” at the MMK 1, the artist Subodh Gupta (b. 1964) is showing bronze fruits, gilded bicycles, marble lunchboxes and gigantic installations of stainless steel dishes.The artist’s most comprehensive retrospective to date in Europe, the show reflects a contemporary conception of India as a society for which traditional values, spirituality and religious belief are just as important as the consistent pursuit of modernization and the related transformation processes in all areas of life.

An aspect shared by all of the artist’s works – from sculptures and installations to paintings and performances – is their contemplation of local phenomena in a global context. For his art, Gupta employs everyday objects considered typically Indian and questions the cultural meanings attributed to them. With an oversize lunchbox made of marble, for example, he alludes to differing cultural imprints. Marble – a luxury product in the Western scheme of things – is a standard construction material in India, where it is used for the floors and bathrooms of the middle class.

The themes of cooking and eating hold special significance within Gupta’s oeuvre – a circumstance evident not only in the large-scale artworks consisting of kitchen utensils, but also in the Indian cuisine prepared in the exhibition for the visitors on every first Saturday of the month.

Whitney NY 2015




When the Whitney Museum’s new Renzo Piano-designed home on Gansevoort Street opens its doors in the spring of 2015, the inaugural installation will be the largest display to date of the Whitney’s permanent collection. Following this distinctly Whitney narrative will be an array of exhibitions devoted to the work of Archibald Motley, Frank Stella, Laura Poitras, and David Wojnarowicz, as well as a show of hundreds of works gifted to the Whitney and the Centre Pompidou in Paris by Thea Westreich Wagner and Ethan Wagner.

“The Whitney has been steadily building a remarkable world-class collection of American art since our founding by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1930, much of which has remained largely unseen,” said Adam D. Weinberg, the Whitney’s Alice Pratt Brown Director. “This transformative moment—the opening of our beautiful new home downtown—calls for a fresh look at ourselves and is the perfect occasion for us to celebrate our collection, the essence of who we are.”

On the occasion of the opening of the new building, the Museum will publish an expanded handbook of the collection, its first since 2002, featuring 350 artists.  A companion volume will explore the Whitney’s core philosophy through essays discussing the Museum’s history and the ongoing reinvention of its display strategies and changing definitions of American art in a global context.
