Art for real
Art depicts reality in all its philosophical forms and that is what the debut exhibition titled Distorted Liberation by Aditya Vikram Sengupta depicts. The work comprises an expanse of mutilated forms and grotesque figures, nude postures, charcoal drawings on paper. The work is reflective of the artist's interest in humanism but also spectacle, sex and violence that is so pervasive in today's media and real world.

The varied world of women
If you would want to check out the upcoming young art scene in India, then the group art exhibition Allegories can be one option to check out. The show attempts to put together the various sensibilities of six young women contemporary artists. Coming from diverse backgrounds the artists share a unique sensitivity to their surroundings and a keen observation of the same. They, each in her own way have taken a closer look at their socio-cultural and immediate surroundings and reacted sharply. One looks at women's place in society as in contrast to what it was in the ancient past, another talk about issues of displacement.
