The Lalit Kala Akademi hosts Primavere Del Bianco, an exhibition of 10 Italian artists. Part of it is Springs In White, a multimedia installation of paintings juxtaposed with artificial light. The use of wooden block prints, graffiti art and even white flour dough makes this exhibition an interesting example of the use of light in art. The exhibition is built around a concept that was prevalent in Europe at the beginning of the 19th century, which involved the use of white in monochrome art. Artists such as Matteo Basile, Carlo Bernardini, Franco Londa, Dino Pedriali and Paolo Radi are a part of this exhibition.
At the Lali Kala Akademi, New Delhi, till 15 May.
