Inheritance brings together the work of 13 young people in Glasgow and Bangalore in a project exploring shared histories and identities between South Asia and the UK. All the participants spent several months engaging in a photography training programme with artist collaborators Arpita Shah, Morwenna Kearsley (in Glasgow), Vivek Muthuramalingam, Krishanu Chatterjee and Snigdha Rana (in Bangalore, India).
The project is part of the larger initiative Our Shared Cultural Heritage , with this strand being a collaboration between Glasgow Museums and Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow, and Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) and Kanike Collective in Bangalore. This has involved a series of activities in skills development in both locations, plus online tuition, guest artists talks and digital engagement.
The work includes a diversity of approaches from portraiture exploring themes of family and cultural history, migration, place, class and gender identity.
