Curate the Campus 2013: Lahore to Chandigargh
Lahore to Chandigarh is an exhibition of 200 photographs by artist William Titley. The Pakistani and Indian cities are represented by 100 images each, captured when Titley visited in 2008 and 2011 respectively. The exhibition installation is undertaken by the artist in a live process, guided by a tacit understanding of space and location. The final arrangement of the photographs depends heavily upon Titley’s interaction with the people and politics of a given place - the conversations pre, during and post installation are all part of the work and help to inform the development of the project. Lahore to Chandigarh has been presented at various sites, negotiated through chance encounters; often presented outside the gallery context, the conversations and situations help form the process and generate dialogue around issues of location, identity and spatial ownership.
