Jangarh Singh Shyam

Jangarh Singh Shyam was an Indian artist from the Pardhan Gond community, whose meteoric rise in the contemporary art world ended in the tragic fate of him taking his own life, at the age of 21 in Japan. In 2019, one of India’s most respected art historians, Dr Jyotindra Jain, wrote a groundbreaking treatise on his work, Jangarh Singh Shyam: The Conjuror’s Archive, which coincided with the first major retrospective of his work at the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art in Delhi (with artworks loaned from the MAP collection). Cara’s director worked closely with the museum, Dr Jain and the creative agency TSK Design (who designed the book), in a project-management capacity to help realise the exhibition and the catalogue, working on artwork digitisation, marketing, publishing contracts and distribution, and as the POC between the author and the designers.
