Being Singular Plural: Deutsche Bank Series
at the New York Guggenheim Museum



Until June 06 Being Singular Plural offers visitors the unique opportunity to encounter recent and new film, video, and sound-based works by seven of the most innovative and visionary contemporary artists, filmmakers, and media practitioners living and working in India today: Shumona Goel, Shai Heredia, Sonal Jain, Vikram Joglekar, Amar Kanwar, Mriganka Madhukaillya und Kabir Mohanty. The works included in this presentation reveal the quiet principles of practice, process, and perception, while being grounded in a vital social consciousness. This timely and discourse-defining exhibition is oriented toward coproducing new work, facilitating research, and assembling a community of practitioners. Each of the films and videos presented formulates a new kind of viewership in which the ephemeral and the minute are of central importance. Being Singular Plural is the fourth exhibition in the "Deutsche Bank Series at the Guggenheim" presenting commissioned works created for Deutsche Bank and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, as well as thematic shows for the Berlin and New York Guggenheim Museums. The series began in 2009 with Anish Kapoor’s spectacular sculpture Memory and was continued with Julie Mehretu’s painting cycle Grey Area and the group show Found in Translation, that is now on view at the Deutsche Guggenheim.

Following the Deutsche Guggenheim iteration of this exhibition-in-progress in Berlin, the New York presentation consists of seven context-specific projects, a majority of which have been specially conceived of or coproduced for this occasion. They are dispersed across three of the museum’s Annex Level galleries as well as in the New Media Theater and along the museum’s exterior. Philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy’s notion of "being singular plural" provides the exhibition’s structural framework. Recognizing the interconnectedness of all beings, the selected films, videos, and interactive sound installations invite visitors to reassess conventional boundaries between such categories as fiction and non-fiction, art and cinema, the still and moving image, documentation and poetry, and objectivity and subjectivity. By manipulating sound, image, and text in experimental ways, these practitioners shift viewers’ positions from passive spectatorship to active participation—to places where the "we" of "being together" is in the immediate here and now.
