One of the most significant artists to emerge in post-Independence India,
Mohamedi mainly worked with gestures of pencil and ink on paper, experimenting with organic forms, delicate grids, and dynamic, hard-edged lines. Her cosmopolitan outlook enabled her to draw upon a range of aesthetic sensibilities, from the poetry of Rilke and Camus, as well as Indian classical music, to the modernist architecture of Le Corbusier's Chandigarh.
Spanning Mohamedi's entire career and bringing together more than 130 paintings, drawings, photographs, and rarely seen diaries, the exhibition (18.03.2016 - 05.06.2016) traces the conceptual complexity and visual subtlety of the artist's oeuvre. (Text: Metropolitan Museum of Art New York)
