Based in Gurgaon, Jiten Thukral and Sumir Tagra (also known as T & T) work collaboratively with a wide range of media including painting, sculpture, installations, interactive games, video, performance, and design. Thukral & Tagra work on new formats of public engagement and attempt to expand the scope of what art can do; further emphasizing what the practice can do in a virtual context through their archives and publications. They break out of the mediated-disciplinary world, creating multi-modal storytelling in immersive environments.
Thukral & Tagra will present instances from two decades of their practice, concerns, and collective/duo collaborations that range from paintings to using Artificial Intelligence. They will present their artistic relationship with technological change, referring to interactive games and recent ventures with NFTs.
