The exhibition bringing together the pieces presenting a new point of view to the miniature art, is questioning the 'contemporary miniature' and its dynamics that have been turned into a living art form by artists from various countries, through forms such as sculpture, video, textile, photography, and installation. The exhibition emphasizing on issues like colonialism, orientalism, economic inequality, gender, politics of identity, discrimination, social violence, compulsory migration, and representation, will be open until January 17th, 2021.
