Touching on Caste is a group exhibition that convenes three anti-caste artistic perspectives from the South Asian diaspora: Godhadi, Shivani Patel and Aaliah Qureshi. Having met as members of A Particular Reality – a network of art students and educators dedicated to alternative and anti-racist pedagogies – they have since developed their respective questions related to their disparate caste positionalities.

From reckoning with dalit ancestral knowledges, to rematerialising memories stored in caste-based materials and Muslim-inflected fables, Touching on Caste presents the complex and multitudinal experiences of caste beyond South Asia.
