Homebound

writings, maps, objects, poetry along with sculptural works to go back to the past and recall memories locked in another time. According to Curatorial Advisor Reha Sodhi, “The exhibition is a poignant chronicle of the artist’s life that interweaves personal archives, notions of home
and memory. Her work is a unique assemblage ofintimate moments, poetry and personal objects that were passed on from one generation to the other.” On: January 31-February 24

Myth & Culture

With the show Gerard Garouste – The Other Side at the National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA), Delhiites have a chance to view artworks by the French painter and sculptor. Garouste is influenced by culture, myths and legacy of old French philosophers and writers. This show is interesting because the artist has displayed a variety of themes fit for the Indian context. Garouste was always fascinated with humanity and the metaphysical, which led him to India’s link to his own cosmogony. Also, the artist has worked here during the 1990’s, on projects for his art education charity, La Source. Till: March 29 At: NGMA, Delhi

Art meets Architecture Design

The artworks range from painting, photography, text, installation, sculptural and design objects. According to the curator, “Expanding on the notion of pure creativity, the project has chosen a multidisciplinary approach that gathers not only artists, but also architects and graphic, textile and industrial designers who constantly engage with the expanding boundaries of imaginative
thinking.
