Verve Weekend Guide

From a two-day April Fools Day Fest to a dim sum feast, Verve gives you the lowdown on the events that should be on your radar this weekend…

ART

33 Link Road, Mumbai

For many artists, it’s an emotional connection to a place, event, person or experience that guides their practice. And for Delhi-born artist Sumakshi Singh, it’s the various homes she’s lived in that she finds emotional resonance in, and that form the basis for her latest show. The exhibition — that gets its name from the home built by her family in Delhi soon after Partition, when her grandparents migrated from Pakistan to India — includes life-sized, embroidered architectural fragments of these spaces, and invites viewers to walk through these works, each one telling a different story.
33 Link Road is on display at Sakshi Gallery (6/19, Grants Building, 2nd Floor, Arthur Bunder Road, Colaba), Mumbai until April 13.

No Number No Name, New Delhi

Curated by art historian Dr Alka Pande, Singapore-based Indo-British artist Kavita Issar Batra’s latest exhibition in India presents an exhibition of paintings, photographs, video and installations that focus on the natural, organic materials that we find on the pavements and streets around us. Batra,  in each of her creations, brings to life the seemingly ordinary as she attempts to find beauty in the mundane and often ignores the world around us.
No Number, No Name is on display at Visual Arts Gallery (India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, Institutional Area, Lodi Colony), New Delhi until April 6. 

FOOD 

Dim Sum Feast by Zega at Sheraton, Hyderabad

For gourmands, East Asian food is that cuisine that you want more of, as you have more of it.

Including a variety of the famed dumplings in both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, Zega’s special menu features dishes like pan-fried chicken gyoza, sichuan spicy pork dim sum, Beijing dumplings, braised wontons, crispy fried turnip and Shiitake cakes. End your lavish meal with a helping of their delicious banana toffee and an ice cream of your choice!
