About This Lesson

New Delhi-based artist Jagannath Panda lives in the burgeoning city of Gurgaon, which is one of India's major outsourcing hubs and bases of operation for global corporations. His works illustrate the city's tensions, as overdevelopment threatens natural habitats and infrastructures collapse before they are completed. Panda's mix of mythology and realism points to the evolving nature of Indian identity and experience today. His snake sculpture, "The Cult of Survival," is an expression of the danger in becoming addicted to the cycle of production and consumption in a rapidly changing world.
