Mid Day

The real taste of In­dia

- Arts · India · Mumbai

As Mum­bai Art Room inches closer to its new launch as a cu­ra­to­rial lab, un­der the di­rec­tion of Eve Lemesle, its new managing di­rec­tor and a new cu­ra­to­rial ad­vi­sory com­mit­tee, there are plenty of good things to look for­ward. The launch is set for Septem­ber 20, along­side their an­nual ben­e­fit. The oc­ca­sion will see photograph­er Dayanita Singh’s lat­est book/ex­hi­bi­tion Mu­seum Bha­van come to town. Mum­bai Art Room will also hold its an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion, this time a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Ni­haal Faizal and Chi­nar Shah. The ex­hi­bi­tion is called The Real Taste of In­dia, a com­ment on ho­mogenised na­tional iden­tity. The talk of the event is Su­bodh Gupta, who has de­signed limited edition printed ce­ramic plates, 27 cm in di­am­e­ter, which we are sure will go for an as­tound­ing five-fig­ure sum each. Gupta sure can put the glam on ce­ramic.
