Summer is past us, and it’s time to get out of the cool confines of our air-conditioned rooms, as the upcoming art season beckons a cultural fiesta. Galleries which remained fairly staid through the summer are back in action with incredibly interesting exhibits, featuring works across mediums and disciplines.

While there’s a lot to see, our in-house art guide Anubha Jain picked exhibits that she found most enticing. Get ready to get art-ed out this season.

Karen Knorr, India Song | Opens on the 27th of September

art1 Art Alert | Exhibits on our Radar

This exhibition presents 30 new works from Karen Knorr’s India Song series. The photographs pay homage to the beauty and power of Indian architectural spaces, especially Rajput and Mughal styles. However, these spaces become the unexpected settings for a variety of animals – picked from Indian sanctuaries, jungles and folkloric narrative. They act to blur the boundaries between reality and illusion – creating photographs of ambiguity, but also of majesty.
