Towards Marg is an exhibition exploring South Asian LGBT identities in the UK’s political and cultural scenes. Sarbat has arranged a special talk by curator Niranjan Kamatkar, Artistic Director at Wise Thoughts.
Towards Marg (part of the Alchemy Festival 2016) features the photographic work of artists Charan Singh, Raisa Kabir, Balbir Krishan and Sushil Mangaonkar. ‘Marg’ is Sanskrit for pathway, and the exhibition looks at the various journeys South Asian LGBT people are taking through life in this country.
