When we speak of Europe's influence on India, art can't be far behind. Inspired by the works of Italian artist Artemisia Gentileschi, and her depiction of Judith and Holofernes, where Judith (a Jewish widow) seduces Holofernes - an Assyrian tyrannical invader - to save her land, seven women artists come together to showcase 'And The Falchion Passed Through His Neck'. The paintings are a representation of female empowerment in contemporary society, where each work is inspired by a female heroine where the artist herself is strong female figure.

Take a walk through history
Over many centuries, Delhi has developed its diversity through equally diverse cultures. Join curator Himanshu Verma as he takes you through a '360-degree view of Delhi', one of the most historically rich cities of the world. Titled '1100 Walks', the name comes from the pin code of Delhi. Historians regard 11 as the end of classical age and the beginning of Islamic age in Delhi. Colloquially, 11 is also regarded as a symbol of walking. 1100 Walks will also have workshops on Indian culture and arts like cooking and floral decoration.
