Explore the world with TRIPtych – with visuals dedicated to travel

What do you do after returning from a wonderful holiday? Maybe write a holiday diary, talk all about it to your friends, or simply go through your photos to reminisce. Now, you have the chance to enjoy others’ travels as well, through the art show TRIPtych – A Visual Ode to Travel, by Arzan Khambatta, Ritam Banerjee and Sona Bahadur.

The show features photographs and installations by the three artistes, and it also happens to be Sona Bahadur’s debut exhibition of her images. ‘Shot in far-flung places, the freewheeling work is bound together by a mood of playfulness and whimsy,’ she says about her works. Banerjee and Khambatta’s works too, delve into their travel diaries and suitcases to present a colourful and artistic view of the worlds they have explored.
