More than words, it's art
A text based art show, Words: A User's Manual, uses text as an object to turn it into an art. Words form the language - that's mysterious and paradoxical. It reveals, and at the same time, conceals. In codified form using text base codes, symbols and shapes, it conveys the desired message. While speaking, certain rhythmic sounds form the language. Curated by Himali Singh Soin, the exhibition tries to question the truth and deceit of language, bringing the world of criticism into art. Can art criticism and art exist together? To find out, visit the exhibition.
November 26 to December 30, 11am to 7pm Exhibit 320, F-320, Lado Sarai, call 46130637 for further details
