The work of Atul Dodiya, Sheela Gowda and Vivan Sundaram was presented as part of Secular Practice: Recent from India, an exhibition of nine contemporary artists from India that was taking place at three Vancouver galleries in addition to the Contemporary Art Gallery. Responding to the reality of living in a rapidly modernizing society, the work of the artists in the exhibition addressed issues ranging from freedom of expression, social justice, growing religious fundamentalism and widespread communal violence to sexuality, women’s rights, the inequities of entrenched class and caste systems, the processes of history and memory and the nature of art itself in these circumstances.

The other artists in the exhibition were Jayashree Chakravarty, Rummana Hussain, Bhupen Khakhar, Nalini Malani, Anand Patwardhan and Pushpamala N. Participating galleries are the Charles H. Scott Gallery, Presentation House Gallery and the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Secular Practice: Recent Art from India itself was one of a number of components of the project Moving Ideas: A Contemporary Cultural Dialogue with India organized by Hoopoe Curatorial. The project also included the exhibition Dust on the Road: Canadian Artists in Dialogue with SAHMAT at the Roundhouse Community Centre, film presentations, lectures, performance and literary events.
