three times a lady

She’s pretty—and she knows it. And she only gets better with age. Ever since she was christened in 1995, earning the title of a style icon, ‘Lady Dior’ has led a jet-setter’s life and won the affections of fashionistas across the globe. It was clearly only a matter of time till the inevitable happened and the ‘Lady Dior’ bag became a muse for artists. That was the beginning of Lady Dior Art three years ago, when the fashion house invited artists to treat the bag as a canvas for their art. And why not? The bag had extended itself beyond fashion. Its petite size, rectangular architecture and embellishments that made it readily identifiable as a Dior (its charms inspired by good luck talismans, the best-quality materials and faultless craftsmanship) did lend…

art o’clock

The Mumbai Art Room’s Curatorial Lab, in its 2018 edition, produced four young curators, four successful exhibitions and programmes that spanned a number of workshops, artist talks and events. To support the Room’s 2019 edition, New Delhi-based contemporary artist group Raqs Media Collective designed a limited-edition timepiece for sale. Proceeds from the sales of the clock—titled The Assurance Clock (An Antidote for Alarmists)—will go towards mentoring and nurturing the new generation of curators chosen by the Lab. The Raqs Media Collective—comprising Monica Narula, Jeebesh Bagchi and Shuddhabrata Sengupta—are artists, curators, observers, technological philosophers and ‘posers of questions’. Their work swings pendulum-like between tangible and intangible, physical and imagined, temporal and ephemeral, while being medium agnostic, and deals with issues of globalization, urban planning, history, utopias and the human experience. No other species…

I had a hot cup of tea in my hands and was reading the newspaper when I got the call from the Kochi Biennale Foundation inviting me to curate the event’s fourth edition. Along with the accompanying surprise and delight that goes with this kind of honour, I was hit with the realization of the project’s scale, and the consuming commitment it would demand, and so, I asked them for a day to mull it over before saying yes. Had it not been for my recently completed architectural project in Greater Noida, [in Uttar Pradesh]—a block in the artists’ colony, Kaladham—I would have likely felt unprepared for my curatorial role. Conceiving and building something from the ground up—working with a host of architects, contractors, electricians and construction labourers on a…

living with art

To bring an artwork into your home is akin to bringing in a piece of history. Over time, the artworks that you live with become a part of your own history and legacy. Nothing expresses this more succinctly than Shilpa Gupta’s light sculpture that hangs above the bar in my house, literally spelling out the word ‘history’ in scrawling letters. Its electric light emits a neon-red glow on the opposite wall, which is stacked with an array of bottles cast in stainless steel—a site-specific installation by Subodh Gupta. To me, the juxtaposition of the two works is a poetic metaphor for the art world—the fact that both artists, whose works are categorized as contemporary, are actually becoming a part of India’s art legacy. When contemplating the artworks that my wife Minal…
