THE British Council and Lalit Kala Akademi Regional Centre, Chennai, present "Past Modern", an exhibition of paintings by the Singh Twins — Amrit and Rabindra K. D. Kaur Singh — from February 8 to 26, 11 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. (except Sundays) at Lalit Kala Akademi. London-born artists and twin sisters, Amrit and Rabindra, have widely exhibited in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Essentially drawing on the Indian miniature tradition, their award-winning paintings combine elements from Western and Eastern aesthetics to create a unique genre in British Art practise. Describing their work as Past-Modern (as opposed to Post Modern), they challenge existing stereotypes and redefine generally accepted, narrow perceptions of heritage and identity.
