Such displays of city-centric art in public spaces is a familiar sight in the West; initiatives like these have played a huge role in familiarising and educating the common man about their city’s rich, historic past.
Starting this Independence Day, Palladium and World Luxury Council will be hosting Bombay: 100 Years Ago, a vintage art exhibition to showcase the first-of-its-kind collector’s edition of 100-year-old unpublished archival prints of the city. The canvas prints that have been sourced from a private collector, make for a fantastic rewind yatra into a time that was tinted with a sepia lens.
The aura and drama of the Raj come alive from Mumbai’s gullies, corners and contours, in its people and charming, yet suitably buzzing streetscapes. Don’t miss this one!
