Nancy Adajania is a cultural theorist and curator based in Bombay. Since the late 1990s, she has written consistently on the practices of four generations of Indian women artists. Her book, The Thirteenth Place: Positionality as Critique in the Art of Navjot Altaf (The Guild Art Gallery, 2016), goes beyond the mandate of a conventional artist monograph to map the larger histories of the Leftist and feminist movements in India. She was the juror for Video/Film/New Media fellowship cycle of the Akademie Schloss Solitude (2015 - 2017). She will be curating a retrospective of the artist Navjot Altaf at the National Gallery of Modern Art, Bombay, in December 2018.
