“The role of artists in the society is monumental. Truly, there are no alternatives to practising art when it comes to illuminating the social psyche. The social psyche comprises of manifold vantage points, needs, wants, and attention spans that may sum up to an impenetrable wall of noirishness that only art can break through. So, artists have to try to be very clear in articulating their purpose and sort of ‘ride’ their art where both expression and communication may manifest ideas in various cogitable forms. This art exhibition is an attempt at that”, a press release said about the exhibition.
The exhibition is open to all until November 29 and can be visited according to the following schedule: Monday to Thursday from 3pm to 9pm, Friday and Saturday from 9am to12 noon as well as 5pm to 8pm (closed on Sunday).
