Powerful moments

Rajyashri Goody, an artist and writer who documents the life and culture of the Dalit community through her work, will be unveiling a solo show, Is The Water Chavdar?, at GALLERYSKE in Delhi. It’s inspired by the transformative incident in 1927 when B.R. Ambedkar and 10,000 others marched to a water tank, Mahad, in Maharashtra and drank its water. Dalits weren’t allowed to do so, even their shadow touching it was considered impure. This came to be known as the Mahad Satyagraha. Goody’s show pays homage to this moment through ceramics, printmaking, paper pulp, and adapted recipes. On view from 20 August-1 October, 11am-7pm (closed on Tuesdays, Sundays by appointment)

Enter the world of Anupam Sud

This is an exhibition that you simply must not miss. The Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, Saket, is celebrating Anupam Sud's five decades of printmaking with a new exhibition, ‘Between Vows and Words’. The artist is not just significant for her consistent engagement with printmaking but also for her deep enquiry into the human form. “Anupam Sud is a grand master of chiaroscuro. The artist has over the years administered it to an intense, almost meditative and exacting investigation. But what are the sources and meaning of the strange life drama in Anupam’s world, a realm suspended between light and dark, theatric vows and broken words?” writes Roobina Karode in her curatorial note. The exhibition opens at the KNMA, Saket, on 23 August.
