Poster boys
The recently formed group, Poster Art, presents its exhibition 'Posters on the Environment.' While their name is self-explanatory, their objective is novel. They state that "the visual element has become secondary and lost its power and beauty."

They aim to bring it back to its original purpose. "We want viewers to comprehend both visual and text as separate entities, yet working together as a guided missile," they say.

11am-7pm, December 26 to January 2, Academy of Fine Arts and Literature,
4/6, Siri Fort Institutional Area
For details call: 9811422045

Love street
Akshara Theatre will be staging the premiere of the musical production called The Revised Kama Sutra, a hilarious play based on the equally funny novel by Richard Crasta and adapted for the stage by Jalabala Vaidya.

The play is a comical story of a small town boy's search for love, sex, relationships and spiritualism - a journey that takes him from Mangalore to Washington, with many girls, family conflicts and misadventures along the way - before finding his salvation.
7.15pm, till December 24,
Akshara Theatre.

Colours on the wall
The acclaimed muralist and artist Rouble Nagi painted this series of mural arts while she was on the move in Europe and the Middle East. The works are rich in texture with an impasto effect using very thick paint so that the brush and knife work, with her strokes clearly visible. She ventures into the abstract realm as the landscapes change in the transit.

Nothing in the works is still, forms seem to hover up, around and collide as they fall creating new shapes altogether. Some of them are a sophisticated mix of warm and cool colours, mostly low intensity, with a punch or two of intense colour just to break the monotony.

Till December 24, Lalit Kala Akademi

Great divide
The first installment in a new cultural exchange project, Sleep on the Left Side brings together new work by three leading contemporary Australian artists - Kate Daw, Emily Floyd and John Meade - in New Delhi.

The exhibition is part of the larger Oz Fest, the biggest Australian cultural festival ever held in India. The title alludes to the dualities, dichotomies and the sense of politics that each of the artists engages in different ways.

Till January 19, Seven Arts Gallery,
M- Block Market,, Greater Kailash 2.
