Forgotten Masters Friday Night Late

Curated by Journalist and Crafts Expert Momtaz Begum-Hossain, this evening's programme is a celebration of some of the most exciting and pioneering artists based in the UK of South Asian heritage. Visitors will have the opportunity to wander through the galleries after hours, following an Art Trail featuring work by contemporary British South Asian artists. The evening also includes a panel discussion, a live set by Mercury Prize nominee, singer Susheela Raman, workshops in painting and coaster making, storytelling and DJs. 

Headliner: Susheela Raman

A singer, composer and curator, Susheela moves between genres, across frontiers into new spaces with uncanny ease. Born to South Indian parents in London and raised in Australia, she released her seventh studio album Ghost Gamelan in 2018. The Guardian has described her as a ‘wildly original, passionate and dangerous’ performer and though her music is sometimes described as ‘World,’ she prefers to call it ‘unearthly’, which captures more of its magical and enigmatic character. Tonight is a rare chance to see Susheela performing in the intimate setting of the museum’s Great Gallery.
*Places are limited to 150 allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Chaired by Sailesh Ram from AsianCultureVulture.com, guest panellists Tabish Khan, (Art Critic at Londonist, Jaspreet Kaur (Historian and Poet) and Suman Bhuchar (Cultural Producer) will be discussing the relevance and importance of the Forgotten Masters: Indian Painting for the East India Company exhibition and how they’d like to see contemporary South Asian artists recognised in British art history.
