Tasveer at the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad City Museum, Mumbai

 

Tasveer is delighted to inform you of its collaboration with the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad City Museum, Mumbai, where Sebastian Cortés - Sidhpur: Time Present Time Past opens this 20th March 2015.

 

Sidhpur: Time Present Time Past forms the first in-depth photographic examination of the Bohra community of Sidhpur, Gujarat. Saturated with detail and exploring notions of biography, geography and memory, these images capture the echoes and residual glamour of a time gone by; that yet persist, fossilised within the Bohras’ unique architectural forms.

 

The exhibition will stay on view till 30th June 2015.

Institutions forms part of Tasveer’s ninth season of exhibitions; Taylor’s most recent body of work, it explores the interiors of Imperial buildings in Mumbai and Kolkata. Taylor’s eloquent depictions of some of the quintessential emblems of British rule, unravel the legacy of colonialism, considering its ambiguities and its impact on contemporary Indian society.

 

Saibal Das at the Harrington Arts Centre

 

Tasveer is pleased to announce the opening of Saibal Das – Before the Birth of Time at the Harrington Street Arts Centre, Kolkata on 3rd March 2015.

 

Before the Birth of Time explores the world of faith through the lens of holy cities, illuminating some of the most significant, yet shrouded, religious and spiritual practices in India with an empathetic and meditative eye. Functioning as visual critique, these elegiac photographs force us to reconsider our existing notions of reality, memory, death and the ‘self’.

 

The exhibition will stay on view till 16th March 2015, and is enabled by the support of Vacheron Constantin and The Singleton of Glen Ord.
