Culture & Entertaining Art attack: What’s new in the art world?

The new gallery: Delhi Art Gallery opens a branch in New York
After wowing us with their exhaustive collection of Indian Modern art in Delhi and Mumbai, the Delhi Art Gallery is set to open its first international gallery in New York this month. Spread over 7000 sq ft in the heritage Fuller Building on the corner of 57th St on Madison Avenue, it will debut during Asia Week (March 13-20) with an exhibition titled ‘India Modern’.

The new exhibition: A first-of-its-kind exhibition of sacred art comes to Delhi
The Museum of Sacred Art (MOSA) in Belgium travels to India for the first time this month with its exhibition, Forms of Devotion (21 March to 26 April) at the Lalit Kala Akademi in Delhi. The multi-dimensional arts project curated around the notion of the spiritual search in Indian art will include about 300 works by over 150 artists from MOSA’s permanent collection.

The new artist: Experimental filmmaker Shambhavi Kaul has her first solo exhibition
As her films played on a loop through December at Mumbai’s Jhaveri Contemporary Gallery, experimental filmmaker Shambhavi Kaul caught our attention with her varied techniques such as photograms—made without a camera, by placing objects directly on photosensitive film. Kaul (she was born on a film set!) grew up under the influence of her father Mani Kaul, a pioneer of avant-garde Indian cinema, and her work tries to address questions that revolve around identity, culture and politics.
