Events of the week

For a cause

What: An international artists exhibition titled ‘What To Do With Difference | Art and Artists as a Bridge’ is a group exhibition of artworks by artists of Art for Change Foundation. Works by 12 international artists and nine Indian artists along with works from the Art for Change Foundation’s collection will be on view. In India, as in the rest of the world, differences such as gender, religion, politics, socioeconomic status, and language make it difficult for us to understand each other. For this reason, Art For Change Foundation’s theme for the International Artist Residency 2020 is “What to do with Difference? Art and Artist as Bridge”. For two weeks in Delhi, a diverse group of 21 national and international artists came together to engage the issue of difference, from the small and personal aspects of individual relationships, to the perennial questions of community and social identity.

Distinct style

What: Triveni Kala Sangam presents a solo show of Shiv Lal Saroha “I speak with my brush”. He has worked consistently and unceasingly, evolving a strong and distinctive style of a new kind of expressionism. His single-minded pursuit of excellence was recognized when he got the First Prize at the College of Art in Delhi in 1986 followed by an award from the Sahitya Kala Parishad. He has been recognized for his unique style and technique. The key to Shiv Lal Saroha’s works is a blend of visual lyricism with rhythm. His art has an intrinsic and inherent quality. It features bold strokes – be it in charcoal or other mediums. Saroha has held a few solo shows and has been a part of many major group shows. His works were shown in the National Exhibitions of Art in 2006 and are in the collections of well-known collectors in Germany, France, Scotland, England, Italy and U.S.A.

When: March 17 – 24 (11am – 8pm)
