Memories on canvas
Describing the exhibition as ‘An artistic exploration of mundane’, Exhibit 320 brings together seven artistes for Delineating Memories that kicked off last Friday (18 July). The exhibition will be on till 5 August.
Exhibit 32O showcases artistes that are placed within complex frameworks of time, place, society, history, art and culture, entering into a continuous dialogue to demystify these systems they inhabit. They travel through time, switch roles and perspectives, and delineate their discoveries like a map from memory.
Simultaneously indulging into insightful and retrospective journeys to learn and comprehend, give way to endless curiosity and complexity of thought. This is reflected in the play of material, artifacts, deconstruction of concepts and creation of myriad forms. These maps range from representations of vernacular visual culture, narrative personal histories, exploration of physical spaces, to poetic dialogues.
This exhibition underlines an almost meditative practice employed by each artiste in order to discern the value of personal experiences, visual culture and physical spaces.
Participating artistes are - Simrin Mehra Agarwal (India), Gazi Nafis Ahmed (Bangaldesh), Noorali Chagani (Pakistan), Simeen Farhat (Pakistan), Sharmishta Kar (India), Martand Khosla (India) and M Pravat (India).
WHEN: On till 5 August, 10:30 am - 6:30 pm (Sunday closed)
WHERE: Exhibit 320, F-320, Lado Sarai
