Titled, ‘Visual Realms of Life’, this exhibition aims to demonstrate how art, without losing any of its aesthetic qualities can also serve for the betterment of the society.

In our routine lives we tend to forget about the challenges faced by youth especially children and girls from marginalised communities and their lack of access to any kind of welfare in today’s society. JOSH works through field interventions in the slums and resettlement colony of Trilokpuri in East Delhi, where it engages with marginalized urban poor youth and community members to work towards improving delivery of quality education and youth development.

Several well known artists have come forward to exhibit their works in this event to contribute towards the grassroot programmes in areas of education, health and community development. Certain percentage from the sales proceeds of the artworks will be contributed by the artists to the non-profit organisation JOSH.

MONOCHROME- Self Portrait at Piramal Art Gallery

The unique concept of self portrait photography was the outcome of the numerous ideas of images mixed together in a strange way like in a dream portrait as conceived by Shveta Gautam. She worked on monochrome mode of photography which included negative and positive space in order to describe her identity as to how to visualize natural source of light. She has captured self-portraits that elaborate her as a creative person or a silent daydreamer with proper amalgamation of various hues. She got the inspiration for this from Frida Kahlo, Mexican Painter known for her self-portraits. As a result, she has presented the present series which says a lot about composition of light, self, stillness along with the emotions on her face that represent her inner self in apt arenas and perspectives of photography as a visual art.  

A solo self portrait photography exhibition by a talented artist, Shveta Gautam, will be held at Piramal Art Gallery, NCPA, Nariman Point, Mumbai 400021 from 20th to 22nd May 2022 between 12 noon to 8 pm. It will be inaugurated by Mr. Mahesh Mhatre at Piramal Art Gallery, Mumbai on 20th May 2022 at 5 pm.
