Sacred space

A belief in divinity and sacred spaces is something that lets the circle of life going on. An exhibition that showcases a range of works in calligraphy ink on archival paper inspired from Shiva, the Ramayanam with reference to narratives from the Jagannath Temple of Puri, significant images of Krishna leela by Parameshwar Raju will be on display. The works are profound and promise to touch a chord of our lives.

10am-7pm, April 27 till June 10, Art Spice, The Metropolitan Hotel & Spa, Bangla Sahib Road, Call: 9852 778 7774

Artists' view
Some forms of inspirations are best understood when viewed with a passionate mind. A pop-up art exhibition curated by Heidi Fichtner will present site-specific artworks, paintings, sculptures, video installations, photographs, drawings and a sound installation by artists across three generations. Inspired by the beautifully derelict maze of empty shops at the Jor Bagh market, the exhibit gives an expression to a web of inter-generational exchanges and friendships.

April 19-21, Kona, 1, Jor Bagh, Call: 26494531

Modern mysticism
A true lover of sufi music would love to explore the mystic art form in all its variations and explorations. Perhaps, keeping this in mind, Fusion Adhesions, a unique sufi and fusion musical group comprising two people (Akki n Hardy) performs powerful live singing. It promises to dissolve you in the purity of sufism and Hindi songs by the melodious voice and guitar strings. Along with live music by guitar, which is a rage amongst youngsters the musicians will combine a unique presentation of karaoke during the current sufi performance.
