What is real and what is fiction? What is physical, what is metaphorical? It is questions such as these that a new show, Dreamscapes, seeks to answer. Hosted by Tao Art Gallery, it features works by Argentinian artist Julia Romano, a finalist for the Arte Laguna Prize 20.21, and Mumbai-based artist Meghna Patpatia. The two combine existing elements with the surreal aspects of mythology and anthropology.
Tao Art Gallery, Mumbai, till 25 November, 11am-7pm daily
THE COLOUR BLUE
DAG is presenting an exhibition that explores the nuances of the colour blue, which seems to be enmeshed into the very fabric of the country—from B.R. Ambedkar’s suit to the shades of the Koh-i-noor, Goddess Kali and peacock feathers—and the fourth colour in the Indian flag. Titled Indian Blue: From Realism To Abstraction, the show uncovers a range of practices to examine the history of the colour in India and the world.
The Claridges, Delhi, till 1 December, 11am-7pm daily
