The cheeky artist duo Thukral & Tagra first took up the laudable cause of AIDS awareness in 2004. Since then it has been the subject of many of their shows. The thrust of Putting it On, their new show at the Nature Morte gallery in New Delhi, is on promoting safe sex, specifically the use of the condom.
“We will talk about Khajuraho, sex in everyday life and superheroes, in the show,” says Sumir Tagra, pointing out that both superhero costumes and condoms are made of latex. Expect wit, camp and irony in the lush artworks, all in the cause of promoting safe sex.
