Read The London Craig blog> Craig’s review of Tate Modern  I’ve been here before. Check out my London blog for a review, with photos

Indian artist Bhupen Khakhar was active from the 1960s until his death in 2003, and was part of the lively style of narrative painting that became known as the 'Baroda School'.

After some early experiments with Pop art, Khakhar soon developed his own style of painting that cleverly subverted popular iconography. He would confront provocative themes with great candour: exploring class differences, desire and homosexuality, and his own personal battle with cancer.

This will be the first posthumous survey of Khakhar's career in the UK, and will bring together lots of canvas and paper works from his fifty year career, and plenty of rarely seen experimental works on textile, glass and ceramics.
