A novel show for a new space

After Kala Ghoda and Bandra, Method art gallery has opened its third space in Juhu. Spanning over 1800 sq ft, this is the gallery’s largest space yet. However, the ethos of Method remains the same across its space—one of collaboration and experimentation. The Juhu space has opened with an inaugural show, titled ‘A Reverie of a Memory’, by artist Anilakumar Govindappa. The works on display offer the viewers a glimpse of the artist’s memories of the various cities that he lived in and travelled to. “Diving into universal topics of home, love, and attachment, Govindappa’s practice is one of observations, including in the landscape of life, acknowledgement of the political,” states the curatorial note.‘A Reverie of a Memory’ can be viewed at Method Juhu Armaan Bungalow, Mumbai, till 21 August, 2023, between 10.30 am and 7.30 pm

Architecture from an artist’s lens

Modern Art Gallery (MAG) is showcasing a new exhibition, ‘Landscapes in Flux’, at the Bikaner House, New Delhi. The show brings together 12 contemporary artists from across the country to showcase how landscapes and architectural designs can be perceived from an artistic lens. ‘Landscapes in Flux’ is in sync with the vision of MAG's contemporary division to expand cultural horizons and build a collaborative institution. In the show, each artist has brought his or her unique perspective. For instance, Mayadhar Sahu has looked at ancient Indian architectures, particularly places of worship. He brings together his extensive knowledge of architecture and archaeology to present a deeply personal take on them. ‘Landscapes in Flux’ can be viewed at the gallery, Bikaner House, New Delhi, till 27 July, 2023
