Part of the first rank of a creative ‘migrant’ generation which became increasingly visible on the global visual art scene in the 1980s, Sunil Gupta welds together a new language of aesthetics, art, and politics in his work. Wish You Were Here is more than just a memoir of a life, it is a journey through the creation of a new visual vocabulary that transformed words like diaspora, sexuality, sex, migration, home, AIDS, and disease into images that revealed and provoked other ways of seeing and understanding. Documenting how the intimate and the personal became political in places as different and as similar as Delhi, London, San Francisco and Tilonia, it is a fiercely contemporary work which will define new directions in Indian visual art as well as in ongoing debates about difference and sexuality.
