If you’re an art fanatic,
If you’re an art fanatic, we’d recommend canceling all plans this weekend. Auction house Christie’s is partnering for the first time with the Mumbai Gallery Weekend. Of course, the initiative is bound to garner some serious attention with the art admirers in the city and will be leading towards the much anticipated 10th edition of the India Art Fair, taking place in New Delhi from 9-12 February.
“We are excited to be a part of Mumbai Gallery Weekend, a positive and new initiative that hopefully will turn into an annual event. The art scene in Mumbai is very vibrant and such new projects are underlining the importance if the market and the important work done by galleries, museums, and art dealers. We are looking forward welcoming many art enthusiasts to engage in interesting discussions about art and culture.”, said Sonal Singh, Managing Director of Christie’s India.
In this exciting venture, Christie’s will bring highlights of its upcoming South Asian Modern + Contemporary Art Sale to Mumbai, which will be taking place in New York on 21 March. We hear this auction will entail rare and exceptional masterpieces by our internationally appreciated artists, such as Raza, Mehta, Newton, and Gaitonde.
A plethora of 15 artworks will be on display during the entire length of the Mumbai Gallery Weekend.
While a 1980-artwork by artist Vasudeo S. Gaitonde on display is said to be influenced by elements of Zen philosophy and ancient calligraphy, his work usually entails a highly codified version of the natural world. In comparison to his contemporaries, Gaitonde focused on a small portfolio of artworks during his lifetime, preferring instead a careful and meticulous painting process.
Tyeb Mehta took inspiration from Western artists and the effect of New York on Mehta’s psyche was inspirational. In his present work, one witnesses a strong sense of liberation. Painted in 1994, Two Figures bears a relation to the themes from the later Celebration, which like the predecessor triptych, draws inspiration from the Charak festival, the Spring festival of the Santhals.
