Accompanies the exhibition at the Holburne Museum, Bath, 7 October 2022 – 8 January 2023 and the National Gallery, London, 2 March–11 June 2023.


For over five decades, artist Nalini Malani (b. 1946) has focused on giving a voice to the stories of those marginalised by history – particularly women. She has pioneered a unique form of socially engaged video art, combining image and sound in hand-drawn animations inspired by myth, history and contemporary politics.


As the inaugural recipient of the National Gallery Contemporary Fellowship with Art Fund, Malani has created a new ‘animation chamber’ inspired by the histories and collections of the National Gallery, London, and the Holburne Museum, Bath. Revealing new underlying stories in some of the most iconic paintings of the Western European tradition, Malani offers a contemporary and critical dialogue between past and present. The artist’s own reflections on the commission are joined by essays which provide insight into her rich and multifaceted practice.



Will Cooper is Curator of Modern & Contemporary Projects at the Holburne Museum, Bath.

Priyesh Mistry is Associate Curator of Modern & Contemporary Projects at the National Gallery, London. 

With contributions by Mieke Bal, Daniel F. Herrmann and Zehra Jumabhoy
