#Art4Justice exhibition inspired by Bapu Surat Singh’s 18- month long hunger strike to free Sikh political prisoners in India

About

The Menier Gallery in London hosts a moving art exhibition inspired by Bapu Surat Singh, an 83-year-old grandfather who left the comforts of his life in the United States behind to peacefully protest in India. Bapu has been on hunger strike for over 550 days calling for the release of Sikh political prisoners. He has been periodically detained by the Indian Police and force-fed during his hunger strike. From the healthy figure at the start of the hunger strike to the now hollow, bony frame the exhibition traces Bapu’s journey for justice.
