The Sahmat Collective

Organized by the Smart Museum of Art.

Since 1989, the influential Delhi-based Sahmat Collective has offered a platform for artists, writers, poets, musicians,
actors, and activists to create and present works of art that promote artistic freedom and celebrate secular, egalitarian values.
The collective formed in the weeks after playwright, actor, and activist Safdar Hashmi was fatally attacked by political thugs while
performing a street play. In the more than twenty years since, Sahmat has drawn on India’s secular heritage and an expansive group of collaborators
to produce a series of projects that engage in important political and social debates through a mix of high art and street culture.

Sahmat has been at the heart of what co-curator Ram Rahman likens to “India’s culture wars.” Animated by the urgent belief that art can propel
change and that culture can reach across boundaries, Sahmat has created space for an expansive group of artists and collaborators to present powerful
works of art that defend freedom of expression and battle intolerance within India’s often divisive political landscape.

The Sahmat Collective: Art and Activism in India since 1989

Opening Reception: July 24, 6 pm

FREE bus from The Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen St W) at 6 pm

Organized by the Smart Museum of Art

Curated by Jessica Moss and Ram Rahman

Animated by the urgent belief that art can propel change and that culture can reach across boundaries, the influential Delhi-based Sahmat Collective has created space for an expansive group of artists and collaborators to present powerful works of art that defend freedom of expression and battle intolerance within India’s often divisive political landscape. The exhibition features a selection of art and ephemera that situates two decades of contemporary Indian art within the political sphere while meditating on art’s capacity as a force for change.
