Hosted in New Delhi, India Art Fair is the country’s premier international art fair. At the fair this year, Tasveer will showcase a selection of works by Karen Knorr, Waswo X. Waswo, Serena Chopra and Rohit Chawla. Also part of the presentation is a selection of still life flowers by Bas Meeuws from his series produced in India that has never been seen before.

Tasveer at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale until 29th March
In a Kochi-Muziris Biennale Collateral event, Tasveer is pleased to be showcasing a selection of works from Karen Knorr’s critically acclaimed series: India Song
Karen Knorr blurs the lines between reality and illusion in India Song by inserting animals into architectural spaces and heritage sites. This unexpected juxtaposition playfully subverts cultural spaces and punctures meaning traditionally associated with them, while posing questions about power, gender, colonialism and cultural appropriation through allegory.
The exhibition is on view at Passage Malabar in Fort Kochi until 29th March 2017.
Mahesh Shantaram: The African Portraits opens in Kolkata
Mahesh Shantaram’s most recent body of work, The African Portraits, will be on view at The Harrington Street Arts Centre from 18th February to 3rd March 2017
Mahesh Shantaram turns to formal portraiture to increase awareness of the everyday discrimination faced by Africans living in India. His emotionally resonant portraits point towards the plurality of Africans, who hail from several different countries and are ignorantly branded in India by their continent of origin and skin colour.

Waswo X. Waswo: Photowallah at FOCUS Photography Festival
Tasveer is pleased to announce that Waswo X. Waswo: Photowalalh will be on view at TARQ in Mumbai as part of the FOCUS Photography Festival from 9th to 23rd March
Photowallah features a selection of Waswo X. Waswo’s hand-coloured studio portraits–produced in collaboration with Rajesh Soni–that playfully examine the ethnographic photograph-as-document that is linked to the colonial era, as well as the fantasy-inspired make-believe that emanated from traditional Indian portrait studios in the late 19th and 20th centuries.
