What is the exhibition about
The river Ganga forms one of the most densely populated river basins in the world. It is also a highly engineered hydrological super-surface. Human activity combined with the dynamic nature of the monsoons has resulted in the river undergoing radical physical changes every year. For any future directive regarding the development and management of the Ganga to be effective, capturing this dynamism is essential.
This exhibition, ‘The River Ganga: India’s Iconic Water Machine,’ has been researched and designed by Dr. Anthony Acciavatti from the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) at Columbia University. Dr. Anthony Acciavatti is Adjunct Assistant Professor, GSAPP, Columbia University. He spent a decade hiking, driving, and boating across the Ganga in order to map the river and authored Ganges Water Machine: Designing New India’s Ancient River, which was awarded the 2016 John Brinckerhoff Jackson Book Prize.
By combining techniques from the arts and sciences, Acciavatti has created the first comprehensive visual profile of the Ganga River Basin in 50 years. This exhibition is a curated excerpt of his systematic, decade-long mapping of the basin’s infrastructural transformation that resulted in more than 25,000 photographs, 15 sketchbooks’ worth of drawings, 1,000 journal entries, and 350 original charts.
