RESIST, the traveling exhibition that started in New Delhi in February and subsequently traveled to Chennai has arrived in Mumbai. The multi-media, multi-dimensional exhibition incorporating art, installation, fashion, performances and music has been a smashing success, garnering media attention wherever it has gone. Conceptualized by Engendered, based in New York and New Delhi, the exhibition is an art protest against sexual violence.
I contributed a canvas for the Wall of Solidarity, which invited artists to contribute a 12 x 12 canvas in support of the cause. See the poster below for more information with images from the opening reception.

Touched by Bhupen
This December, I am creating a large 72in x 72in painting for a group show honoring the 10 Year Anniversary of one of my favorite artists, Bhupen Khakar. Khakar’s uncompromising vision reflected in paintings, which combined the figure and the landscape in deeply personal vignettes about the city, village life, and his own sexuality. Generations of artists have been influenced by his bold vision.
Artists in the exhibition include Atul Dodiya, Sudhir Patwardhan, Nilima Sheikh, Gieve Patel, Shilpa Gupta, Varunika Saraf & many others.
More details TBA.
I am delighted to announce that I will be attending TED’s first ever Fellows Retreat in the magical surroundings of Whistler, Vancouver 17-21 August, 2013 with other amazing TED Fellows in days filled with Talks, Workshops and Activities.
I am grateful for this splendid opportunity!
