Art in response to climate crisis

Sarmaya Arts Foundation and Ojas Art are collaborating on a unique group show, featuring works by 19 indigenous and contemporary artists. The idea of the exhibition, ‘Echoes of the Land: Art Bears Witness to a Changing Planet’, is to explore our fragile relationship with the planet. “As large portions of our planet are increasingly uninhabitable through searing heat, fire and floods, this powerful exhibition of Indian art turns a keen eye on the climate crisis and our fraught relationship with the environment,” mentions the curatorial note. One can see landscapes by Sumit Chitara, Zarina and Chandan Bez Baruah, which show what once was. Tushar and Mayur Vayeda show a path of hope by invoking the Warli goddess of fertility. On view at Ojas Art, New Delhi, from 3-20 November. The gallery is closed on Monday

Pop culture meets satire

One comes across a sense of whimsy in Sujat Roy’s body of work currently on display at Method Kalaghoda. Titled ‘Hello World’, the series includes a portrait of baby Yoda from Star Wars and another one which shows Mahatma Gandhi wearing VR (virtual reality) glasses. “This body of work reflects vibrant elements from Sujat Roy’s ‘Randomly Accessed Memories’. The exhibit will display Sujat's artworks that are incredibly diverse and eccentric, and marked by a sense of wit and wordplay,” mentions the curatorial note. Roy is a New Delhi-based independent artist, who studied industrial design from the Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Bengaluru. He brings together his fascination with pop culture and the Internet to create visuals that span painting, photography, graphic design, installation and video. ‘Hello World’ is on view at Method Kalaghoda, Mumbai, till 3 November, 11 am to 7 pm
