'18 Dimensions: Sculptural Manifestations' is the latest art exhibition bringing a seductive edge to visual arts in New Delhi this week
November 28, 2021: Featuring important works by 18 contemporary artists who have had significant impacts on the Indian and global art landscape, the art showcase, 18 Dimensions: Sculptural Manifestations, at Palette Art Gallery in New Delhi will be highlighting unconventional sculptural art.
Intended to make audiences reflect on concepts such as minimalism and conceptualism using a diversity of materials and methods, the limits of sculptural expressions and their three-dimensional physicality will be explored.
Open at Bikaner House, New Delhi until December 6, 2021, the exhibition is an effort to showcase a broad scope of contemporary sculpture from the abstract, to the minimal, to the popular, making socio-political commentary that is deeply contemplative and thought provoking.
Commenting on details of the show, Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna, directors at Palette Art Gallery, said, “Bringing a seductive edge to the visual arts the sculptural form that occupies space in the third dimension is indeed an exciting medium of expression. It also becomes extremely relevant to encourage a physical interaction with art, as sculpture negotiates material facts, networks ideas and reflects its place, it’s society and it’s time – our time. Sculpture questions our relationship to objects, to search for the other side of the commodity object. An art that is concerned with other ways to think and feel.”
The showcase invites viewer participation and physical engagement with artwork, as New Delhi sets into the initial stages of a renewed mobility from different studios post-COVID. Visitors can view updates for the exhibition as well as view previous and future collections by Palette Art Gallery on their website.
