What: A group show of sculptures with works by Anita Dube, Vibha Galhotra, Bijoy Jain, Jitish Kallat, Suhasini Kejriwal, Mrinalini Mukherjee, Benitha Perciyal, M. Pravat, Ayesha Singh, L.N. Tallur, Thukral & Tagra, and Asim Waqif are on view at Nature Morte. Titled ‘Markers of Time and Space’ some of the works in the exhibition result from the practice or investigation of architecture (such as those by Bijoy Jain/Studio Mumbai, Ayesha Singh, and Asim Waqif). While the revolutions in artistic practice have been taking place for the past 150 years, painting and other two-dimensional art forms have remained relatively unchanged, restricted as they are by materials and processes. Sculpture, on the other hand, has been transformed tremendously, as any and all types of materials, objects, combinations, and procedures can now be enlisted. A show of more than twenty sculptures by twelve artists demonstrates the wide variety of approaches to three-dimensional art making today.
When: 1 August – 12 September
Where: Nature Morte, Dhan Mill

What: Palette art gallery presents a solo exhibition by Apurba Nandi titled ‘A parade of Uncertain Destinations’. The images of the multitude in Apurba Nandi’s solo show captivate the voyage of a mysterious collective of faceless masses, towards uncertain destinations. Multitude becomes the important protagonist of his new body of works. According to art critic Premjish Achari, we witness the flow of innumerable human bodies on the canvas, concealing the markers of caste and religion, refusing to be categorised into any social and religious strata. This visual phenomenon of collective bodies huddled together and moving from all directions could be part of the urban life of Mumbai, Shanghai, New York, Sao Paulo or anywhere else in the world.
What: 12 August – 11 September (11am – 7pm)
Where: Palette art Gallery
