The show has been conceived by Renuka Sawhney, an independent

Modernist and post-modernist modes of aesthetic and conceptual
representation continue to engender a symbiotic relationship
with the contemporary languages of fractured narratives, forms,
and shifting and often unstable contexts; the more so perhaps to
render the experience of being in an increasingly complex world
in search of languages that capture a fraction of this
interplay, revealing an ongoing negotiation of contested space.
In search of the the languages, the artists in Negotiation in
Contested Space formulate their roles as the directors of
spaces suspending modernist, traditional, and contemporary uses
of representation by crafting supple languages accommodating
multiple subjects, objects, and contexts and staging and
situating these in the occupations of contemporary space. By
making specific choices in terms of myth-making, symbology,
architectural framing, and perspective, these artists claim
their place of occupation as the frame within which systemic
structures, individual narratives, forms, and context engender
one anotherís negotiation.
