Shaunak Mahbubani is a nomadic curator currently based in New Delhi, India. They primarily pursue projects under the series Allies for the Uncertain Futures, which was initiated in 2016 and focuses on excavating the possibilities of socio-political, ecological, and techno-evolutionary futures through the lens of non-duality. They are keenly interested in complicating boundaries between the artwork and the viewer through the deployment of participatory devices, diffusions, and the use of alternatives to the white cube. Mahbubani is also currently Curator of Programming for The Gujral Foundation, an international not-for-profit foundation supporting art and culture.
