In partnership with Wrightwood 659, the South Asia Institute will host Jugalbandi, an international webinar unpacking the mythic and cultural aspects of the two Indian masters’ collaboration on Amdavad ni Gufa. Though literally translating to intertwined twins, Jugalbandi has evolved colloquially to describe two practices fused through a competitive and lyrical collaboration. The construction of the Gufa, a domed subterranean gallery of Husain’s work, presented a spirited and competitive challenge between artist and architect. The outcome was a pivotal moment in both Doshi and Husain’s careers.
