We look forward to India Art Festival that is held during the winter in Delhi. This year it was hosted at Thyagraj stadium. It was a free event and drew substantial footfall apparently from all walks of life.
ITC Maurya has a rich heritage and is a sought after experience in India. They have recently included some fresh ala carte dishes on their menu and we were recently invited to taste the new menu. After the session we knew why ITC is a forerunner in the hospitality industry.
Some of us keep delving back into our childhood – our days of Billo, Archie, Chacha Chaudhury or Shikari Shambhu. Delhi Comic Con has brought this hidden desire back to us. It is a festival of comics – old and new – Indian and foreign. It’s a time travel to the past and a flight of fantasy to the future.
Art Tree has been active in propagating the cause of art in Delhi NCR. We have attended their art event Colorama earlier this year. They recently organized panel discussions on art and its role in contemporary times. Various concepts related to art were discussed during the sessions.
The yearly celebration of the contemporary art forms come together at the Contemporary Arts Week organised by Friends of Art. This 8 days long arts festival covers music, theatre, paintings, puppetry, short films and other visual arts forms. It is on from 15th to 22nd October at various venues across Delhi. The inaugural days are at Nehru Park
Colorama by Art Tree is a display of pieces of painting and sculpture at the foyer of Vivanta by Taj, Dwarka. The exhibition is on from 17th September 2016 to 17th February 2017. We were invited to the opening evening for art viewing over wine and cheese. Some of the artists were also available that evening for interacting with the guests.
Triveni Kala Sangam has served the cause of fine arts for years. During a recent visit we came across an exhibition by Pinaki Ranjan Bera. His works were simple and soothing to the eyes.
We keep marveling at how the definition of art has broadened over time. Paintings, sculptures, photography have made way to new forms of artwork. Our visits to India Art Fair are now a complete new experience. Kiran Nadar Museum of Art recently organised a talk were the concept of “The Coup” was discussed. Not from politics but from art perspective.
