Ahead of Vivan Sundaram's retrospective at the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, Lounge charts the artist's journey
It was 1966 and London was in the throes of a cultural renaissance. It was the era of Mick Jagger and The Beatles. And also the time when auteurs such as Jean-Luc Godard and Federico Fellini made some of their masterpieces. As 23-year-old Vivan Sundaram landed in the city on a Commonwealth scholarship, he felt like he had been living in a “cubicle", cut off from all that was happening outside.
