We Found Our Own Reality

Paul Purgas

We Found Our Own Reality is an exhibition and events programme by artist Paul Purgas bringing together architecture, furniture, textiles and sound to explore India's first electronic music studio, founded in 1969 at the National Institute of Design (NID) in Ahmedabad, India. The project explores the technological and experimental ambition of the studio across its five year lifespan at a moment of unprecedented national transformation in India, and build's upon the artist's ongoing research into the development of non-western electronic music.

On 17 May 2020 he will present a programme entitled Electronic Indian on BBC Radio 3, which introduces and expands on his research. Listen to it here.

We Found Our Own Reality is presented in partnership with Camden Art Centre and forms part of the Brent 2020 visual art programme launching in Autumn 2020.
