Jagrut Raval (b. 1986, Ahmedabad, India) is a visual artist with interdisciplinary art practice that spans diverse mediums at various scales, presented in the form of installations, alternative photographic printing techniques, videos, drawings, and appropriation of found and mass-produced items. Inquiries into the notion of time as experience and its relationship to the human condition, Raval’s works critique established truths by investigating, challenging, and subverting perceptions about collective memory in the public sphere — and its manifestation in architecture. Raval’s interests lies in visual-spatial storytelling.
Raval has exhibited internationally at venues including SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, GA; Made in Balmoral Showroom, Bad Ems, Germany; Goethe-Institut Max Mueller Bhavan, Delhi and Kolkata, India; Medrar Contemporary Art, Cairo, Egypt; Serendipity Arts Festival, Goa, India.
