Tagore’s Universal Allegories is an exhibition inspired by the life and work of Indian poet and polymath Rabindranath Tagore (1861–1941). The exhibition features works by artists Anna Boghiguian and Goshka Macuga, made in response to Tagore’s legacy suggesting how his ideas still resonate today. The cultural critic Rustom Bharucha states that ‘Tagore has the capacity to make us think about our times through the filter of shattered ideals,’ and in this exhibition it is possible to see how his approach to art and literature as well as his concept of universalism, ecology and education can be understood through a contemporary sensibility.
