Shilpa Gupta’s practice poetically explores physical and ideological boundaries and how, as individuals, we come to feel a sense of isolation or belonging.
Acclaimed Mumbai-based artist Shilpa Gupta will create a site-specific installation for the Curve – her first solo show in London. Using diverse sculptural media, her work invites us to consider the complexities of identity, violence, and language.
Past projects include solo exhibitions at the Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati, Arnolfini in Bristol, OK Centrum in Linz and Museum voor Moderne Kunst, Arnhem. Gupta has also participated in numerous group exhibitions around the world, including biennales in Venice, Berlin, Kochi, Lyon, Gwangju, Havana, Yokohama and Liverpool.
The Curve is located on Level G and can be found at the bottom of the Silk Street entrance ramp, opposite the Barbican Shop.

The Barbican is widely accessible by bus, tube, train and by foot or bicycle. Plan your journey and find more route information in ‘Your Visit’ or book your car parking space in advance.
Enhanced security measures are currently in place at the Barbican.
As part of these measures only one reasonably-sized bag (no larger than 32cm L x 18cm W x 22cm H) per person may be taken inside our venues and all bags may be searched by a member of our team.
We ask that, where possible, visitors avoid bringing large bags to the Centre. If you do need to check bags into our free cloakrooms, we suggest arriving early. All bags deposited will be subject to search and random bag searches are also in operation.
Please also remember that belongings should not be left unattended at any time.
Thank you for your understanding – we look forward to welcoming you to the Barbican.
