You Can’t Please All

Bhupen Khakhar: You Can't Please All, 1981 © Estate of Bhupen Khakhar

Bhupen Khakhar (1934–2003) played a central role in modern Indian art and was a recognised international figure in 20th century painting. He believed that artists should reflect their own weakness and vulnerability in their paintings and was the first Indian artist to combine traditional art, Indian popular culture and Western pop art.

Thirteen years after his death Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in cooperation with Tate Modern brings his work to the attention of a wider public. The retrospective “You Can’t Please All” documents the artist’s singular position in contemporary art: his virtuosity with colour, the radical union of spirituality and sexuality and the utopia of a society of the powerless and the marginalised.
