Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, Mumbai
Suitcase Museum is a collection of 44 objects from Dayanita Singh’s Museum of Chance (Steidl, 2015). Two suitcases make up this museum, encouraging the future form of the museum and both condensing and expanding its boundaries. In her work, Singh challenges traditional and existing concepts of photography and pushes the medium to speak through other forms like the book, the museum and the archive.
At the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, which inspired Dayanita Singh early in her career, she appropriates the Museum’s syntax and structure, its formal as well as its ideological function to present new ways of looking at and engaging with objects.

For the winter-spring 2017 edition of ‘As You Change, So Do I’, Polly Apfelbaum will produce Any Dream Will Do, a series of new poster-works produced exclusively for Luton town centre.
