Between January 14th and March 10th, 2013 approximately 70-100 million people were expected to attend the Maha Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, India. Hindu pilgrims from all over the world attended to bathe at the convergence of three sacred rivers: the Ganges, the Yamuna, and the Saraswati. This gathering is one of the largest human gatherings on the planet. Daniel S. DeLuca spent five weeks in India developing a project around this context called Source. DeLuca used the concept of ‘source’ as an investigative lens into Indian culture, the Kumbh Mela, and his process of travel and art making. This exhibit showcases this process and subsequent work from the project.
