Sunil Gupta | From Here To Eternity | The Photographers' Gallery

September 4, 2019

Hales is proud to announce From Here To Eternity, a major retrospective exhibition of works by Sunil Gupta, opening in Autumn 2020 at The Photographers Gallery, London.

 

Subversive, whimsical, personal, and political, Gupta’s projects have done much to raise awareness concerning the taboos of homosexual life throughout the modern world.

 

Bringing together for the first time a comprehensive selection of works from across his divergent and extensive career, the exhibition includes key series ranging from street photography (Christopher Street, 1976) to narrative portraits (From Here to Eternity, 1999), along with highly staged and constructed scenes (The New Pre-Raphaelites, 2008), and his early investigations into digital image making (Trespass, London, 1992–1995). 

 

Born in New Delhi, India, residing for several years in Montreal, Canada, and educated at the Royal College of Art in London, England, Gupta has been using photography as a critical practice since the 1970s, focusing on family, race, migration, and the political realities concerning the fight for international gay rights.

 

Curated by Mark Sealy (Autograph, London) this collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery (London) and the Ryerson Image Centre (Toronto) offers a complex and layered view of Gupta’s unique transcontinental photographic vision.
