Vikram Divecha

Lives and Works:
Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Beirut-born, Mumbai-bred, Vikram Divecha is an artist based in Dubai. His practice raises questions about time, value and authorship by engaging people across urban and social spheres, and working with available material and space. Divecha terms this approach as ‘found processes’, which often sees him intervene within public and social systems. From wholesale exporters to municipal gardeners, architectural consultants to railway traffic managers, Divecha’s participants inform and shape his projects in various ways, at times for sustained durations. These attempts translate into public art, site-specific interventions, workshops, installations, moving images, paintings, surfaces, drawings, photographs, performances and text.

Divecha holds an MFA in Visual Art from Columbia University and was a participant of the Whitney Museum’s Independent Study program. Exhibitions include: Jameel Arts Center, Dubai; The Jewish Museum, NY; Wallach Art Gallery, NY; 57th Venice Biennale; 13th Sharjah Biennial; Louvre Abu Dhabi; Gallery Isabelle van den Eynde, Dubai; Alserkal Avenue, Dubai; Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw. Grants, commissions and scholarships: Sharjah Art Foundation; the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture; institut français; the Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation. Residencies: Land Art Mongolia; Temporary Art Platform, Lebanon.

Vikram Divecha exhibited 'Portrait Sessions' at Tashkeel in 2016, as part of his participation in Critical Practice Programme 2015.
