Habit-co-Habit: 2017 Pune Biennale
5 – 29 January 2017
Sambhaji Park, Pune
For the 2017 Pune Biennale, Massimo Bartolini has created a social sculpture in the form of a small amphitheatre around a tree in one of Pune’s leafy gardens, Sambhaji Park. The sculpture is meant to be both symbolic and functional; even while it ensconces the tree it will become the platform for hosting short dance performances.
22 December 2016 – 19 March 2017
Museo Guggenheim Bilbao
Fiona Tan’s two-channel video installation Disorient (2009) is now on view at Museo Guggenheim Bilbao. Originally produced for the Dutch Pavilion of the 53rd La Biennale di Venezia, Disorient reflects the history of Venice as a strategic center for the trade of goods from newly charted Asian territories in the 13th to 16th centuries.
THICKET with Raqs Media Collective
14 – 18 December 2016
Tate Exchange (Switch House, Level 5), Tate Modern, London
Raqs Media Collective will transform the floor of Tate Exchange into a thicket; a forest of lines and connections that grow over time. This interactive work will foster an accumulation of readings that will occupy space, time, and attention through a participatory installation. Thicket will be realized through three actions, titled “Anybody, Everybody, Make a Mark”, “The Unbroken Reading” and “Memorophilia”.
Events are free but require booking through the Tate Modern website: http://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-modern/workshop/tate-exchange/thicket

Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, Mumbai
Suitcase Museum is a collection of 44 objects from Dayanita Singh’s Museum of Chance (Steidl, 2015). Two suitcases make up this museum, encouraging the future form of the museum and both condensing and expanding its boundaries. In her work, Singh challenges traditional and existing concepts of photography and pushes the medium to speak through other forms like the book, the museum and the archive.
At the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, which inspired Dayanita Singh early in her career, she appropriates the Museum’s syntax and structure, its formal as well as its ideological function to present new ways of looking at and engaging with objects.
