All the president’s singers

Spend an evening listening to the band that wowed the American President. The Shillong Chamber Choir, which performed for Michelle and Barack Obama at the Rashtrapati Bhavan last month, invokes the Yuletide spirit at the Select City Walk, a part of their White Christmas celebrations. Winners of the show India’s Got Talent, they’ve performed creditably at World Choir Games in Shaoxing, China and even combined with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra.

December 24. 7 pm-9 pm. For details, call: 999911914

Space, the urban frontier

Four ‘architect-activists’ from across the country got together and brainstormed for a month on issues of urban spaces and environment. Now, they have come up with a set of artworks and installations centred on South Delhi’s urban village of Khirkee. Architect Rupali Gupte works with the metaphor of potholes, while Prasad Shetty critiques the idea of formal mapping of cities in his ‘Demapping project’. Here, Shetty tries to reconstruct the Khirkee village (the field) from the map, and not the other way round. A unique exhibition that promises to engage the viewer with issues of urban development.

December 20-23,
KHOJ Studios, S-17, Khirkee Extension. Call: 011-41516172

through the lens, darkly

The river Yamuna has often been his muse. And in his latest solo, environmental activist and photographer Ravi Agarwal, 52, turns to it yet again, this time showing the dried up river bed. “At one point, you could see a coin thrown into the Yamuna, now that is impossible,” says the founder of Toxics Link, an NGO. But thats not all. Agarwal also turns his lens to road tar machines to highlight issues of labour and looks at desire and despair by clicking random everyday objects.
