This untitled series by Aamir Rabbani of New Delhi received the People’s Choice Award (₹50,000) in the 2019 InsideOut Art Prize, on display now at The LaLiT New Delhi through Dec. 7, from 11 am to 7 pm each day. The award was chosen by attendees at the gala opening of the exhibition.⠀
“My awakening happened when I moved to Delhi from a small town in Bihar,” @aamir.rabbani1 explains. “There, in plain sight, hanging on balconies, on rooftops, and inside homes (that I could see from my balcony), I found clothes drying. Gender or sexuality was nothing they spoke of. They were there. Tangible in form, but not sharing a sexual identity. This was my a-ha moment. My awakening was to realize that the stories our clothes tell, is not the story our hearts feel or our souls ache to share.”⠀
Sponsored by the nonprofit volunteer group InsideOut Delhi and The Naz Foundation (India) Trust, the art prize was open to LGBTQ+ artists who are citizens and residents of India, and awards 2.25 lakh rupees to the winners, who are selected by an independent panel of judges. The show moves to The LaLiT Kolkata Dec. 14-15.⠀
The competition aims to expose Indian LGBTQ+ artists to curators, buyers and the public, and to raise general awareness about LGBTQ+ themes through artistic achievement. Entrants in this year’s competition were asked to explore the concept of “Awakening” from their own experience of being LGBTQ in India.⠀
