The real taste of India
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.
