In search of infinite space
As Tao Art Gallery turns 14, a group exhibition has been organised at the gallery. Titled Infinite, the art exhibition will feature paintings and sculptures by nearly 50 artists. The artist line-up includes SH Raza, Jayasri Burman, Paresh Maity, Prabhakar Kolte, Bharati Pitre, Arzan Khambatta, Dhruvi Acharya, Brinda Miller, Jaideep Mehrotra, Manu Parekh, Rini Dhumal, Samir Mondal, Senaka Senanayake, Sunil Padwal and others. Artist and curator of the event, Kalpana Shah says that the theme for this group exhibition comes from the idea that there is plenty of scope in creativity; one’s heart and mind knows no boundaries, and the potential is infinite, just like space.
