His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries in the United States, India, across Europe and Asia. His most recent exhibition Atul Bhalla: You Always Step into the Same River is an immersion into the knowledge that water imparts.

Magistretti Distinguished Professor in South & Southeast Asian Studies), and Sugata Ray (Assistant Professor of South Asian Art).
