Ed Sheeran in Mum­bai

Ed Sheeran is set to take the stage in Mum­bai’s JioGar­den in the Ban­dra Kurla Com­plex (BKC) on Novem­ber 19, with tick­ets hav­ing sold out within 48 min­utes of them hav­ing gone on sale. The show was put in doubt when the English mu­si­cian in­jured his arm in a cy­cling in­ci­dent in Oc­to­ber, and claimed that the in­jury might af­fect his up­com­ing per­for­mances. This is Sheeran’s sec­ond trip to Mum­bai af­ter a con­cert in March 2015. The per­for­mance at BKC is a part of his Asia tour sup­port­ing his third stu­dio al­bum Di­vide. The ‘Shape of You’ hit­maker will also be joined by Amer­i­can singer-song­writer Lauv.

In­dia’s first sculp­ture park

The Gov­ern­ment of Ra­jasthan has joined hands with Saat Saath Arts to launch The Sculp­ture Park at Mad­haven­dra Palace, in Jaipur’s Na­har­garh Fort. The exhibit aims to broaden the Palace’s vis­ual spec­ta­cle with the sculp­ture dis­play, and will fea­ture works by famed na­tional and in­ter­na­tional artists. Cu­rated by Peter Nagy, Di­rec­tor of Na­ture Morte Art Ltd, the gallery is set to be­come an an­nual fix­ture. For 2017, The Sculp­ture Park will fea­ture work by, amongst oth­ers, Su­bodh Gupta, Asim Waqif, Huma Bhabha, Stephen Cox, and Anita Dube. The gallery will be launched and opened to the pub­lic on De­cem­ber 10.

Jatin Das and friends

Jatin Das will exhibit 500 of his portraits at New Delhi’s Lalit Kala Akademi this Novem­ber, many of which have never been on dis­play pre­vi­ously, in an ex­hi­bi­tion ti­tled ‘Jatin Das: Artists & Friends. Over Fifty Years.’ Portraits, whether in wa­ter­colour, oil, ink, or conté have al­ways been an im­por­tant part of Das’ artis­tic prac­tice. From a young age, the artist has sketched pro­lif­i­cally. The range of his sub­jects, from Bhu­pen Khakhar, Souza and Kr­ishen Khanna to Raghu Rai, Dom Mo­raes and Gulzar, and the va­ri­ety of medi­ums lends a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into his work. The ex­hi­bi­tion will be open from Novem­ber 17 — 22, and a pre­view will be held on Novem­ber 16.
