Travelling Back in Time

Memory, imagination and time come together in a new show, The Revisiting, by contemporary artist Avijit Dutta. This time capsule delves deep into the unpredictable rhythms of the human mind. The works are rooted in Dutta’s encounter with the life and times of physicist C.V. Raman when he was invited to create a commemorative stamp celebrating the 75th year of the Raman Research Institute in Bengaluru. The art will first be displayed at the 100-year-old heritage home of the Nobel Laureate between 22-23 June, and then will move on to KYNKYNY in Bengaluru. At Malleshwaram over the weekend and then at KYNKYNY, Bengaluru, till 19 July, 11am-6pm.

India, Revisited

Curated by Giles Tillotson, the People of Bengal: Coloured Etchings by F. Baltazard Solvyns exhibition by DAG World includes a series of etchings, made by artist François Baltazard Solvyns. The works offer an insight into “the manners, customs, and dresses, of the Hindus” of eastern India at the end of the 18th century. Born and trained in Antwerp, Solvyns came to Kolkata (then Calcutta) in 1791, hoping to make a fortune. During his 10-year long stay, he focused on “ordinary people and his images are often sombre in mood”, states the press release. At Dr Bhau Daji Lad Mumbai City Museum, 91/A, Byculla East, till 29 June, 10am-5.30pm (Wednesday closed). For details, visit www.bdlmuseum.org.
