Verve Weekend Guide
Babur Ki Gai
Mythopoesis, a genre in modern literature and film where a fictional mythology is created by a writer, is a common narrative method. In Babur Ki Gai — conceptualised by Adwait Singh — 19 artists from the Subcontinent and around use this theme to examine the oxymoron that is ‘contemporary history’, and bring to the canvas issues of politics, socio-economics and several issues of the contemporary world, making for a poignant showcase.
Babur Ki Gai is on display at Gallery Latitude 28 (F-208, First Floor, Lado Sarai), New Delhi and at Art District XIII (F-213 C, Ground Floor, Lado Sarai), New Delhi until November 20.
Rekha@Sixty – Transient Worlds of Belonging
To celebrate the reputed artist Rekha Rodwittiya’s 60th birthday, this exhibition presents a sort of retrospective that looks back on her spiritual and physical journey. A sixty-piece series of paperworks is the highlight of the show, that also has on display a series of multimedia works. “The objects I use establish my relationship with the world at large…. They are often possessions that I own, from which I extract metaphors and formulate a personalised symbology,” says Rodwittiya of her creations.
Rekha@Sixty – Transient Worlds of Belonging is on display at Sakshi Gallery (6/19, 2nd Floor, Grants Building, Arthur Bunder Road, Colaba), Mumbai until November 30.
