A glimpse into the artist’s soul
Artworks as portals to artists’ workings of the mind—that’s the premise of Latitude 28’s latest show, Inscapes: In Search Of A Place. One gets to view the landscapes in context of the artists’ own emotions. Curated by Premjish Achari, the exhibition features works by over 30 artists such as Anupama Alias, Ganesh Haloi, Gigi Scaria, G.R. Iranna, Ranbir Kaleka, Jagannath Panda, and more. “The curatorial premise of inscape allows us to explore various artistic practices that engage with psychogeography, cultural rootedness, atmospheric pieces...,” states the curatorial note. The show will be on at Bikaner House, Delhi, from 18-24 December, Monday to Saturday, 11am-7pm.
