Curated by Peter White

From Icons to Pin-Up: Icons of Femininity In Indian Calendar Art presents a sociologist's-eye view of a rather neglected genre of Indian culture, ‘calendar art’, focusing in particular on the representation of women.

Secular Practice: Recent Art From India: Pushpamala N
Adopting popular characters in an ironic way, the artist addresses preoccupations and difficulties women encounter in India today.

Moving Ideas is funded by Ville de Montreal; Conseil des arts et des lettres du Quebec; the Canada Council for the Arts and participating galleries.
