Subodh Gupta, artist

Hear how the objects of Subodh Gupta’s childhood in rural Bihar, India, are transformed in his towering creations built from masses of gleaming polished steel tiffin lunch boxes, brass cooking dishes, and other mainstays of daily life. See how Gupta’s works, several featured in the exhibition, “Megacities Asia,” touch on overarching themes of displacement, loss, and the hardship of migration.
