Nidhi Bhandari’s photograph exploring the idea of ‘Inheritance’ through food

Join us for a walkthrough with Aryan Gulati, one of the participants of the Inheritance exhibition, as he gives us an insider’s view into the exhibition, delving into the many facets of inheritance: personal, social, cultural and collective and reflecting on the participants’ varied approaches to their projects for the exhibition. 

Inheritance, brings together the work of 6 young people in Bengaluru and 7 in Glasgow, exploring shared histories, memories and identities between South Asia and the UK. Documenting practices and stories – personal, familial and collective – this exhibition invites you to embark on a visual journey that reflects on the kind of legacies we inherit, both culturally rich and socially divisive; what traces remain as the lives of multiple generations unfold; as well as, what we choose to embrace and what we leave behind.

This exhibition is the outcome of an international collaboration between MAP, Glasgow Life Museums, Street Level Photoworks and Kanike, as part of the British Council’s Our Shared Cultural Heritage (OSCH) programme.
