Dates from your Diary

Till December 26: Everywhere, Everyday, an exhibition of artworks by renowned artists, exploring the five elements of nature and the relationship to the five senses of the human body. (at The Leela Galleria, The Leela Palace)

Till December 15: Exhibition of photographs and digital videos by Stephen Eckerd – Catalyst for Demolition-Earthquake Nepal 2015.

The photographs of Nepal were taken over a fifty year period by Stephen Eckerd, who retired from the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC recently.  While much remains the same, a ten-fold increase in the population of the valley and sprawling slums of shops and private houses built of cement in a style recognisable in any town in India pose a serious challenge to the unique aesthetics of the valley and the culture traditions that give Nepal its national identity.

The earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25, 2015 and a second large aftershock on May 12th, severely damaged major temples and shrines in the Kathmandu Valley and in the 14 hill districts surrounding the valley. The exhibition will explore the impact of the earthquake in Nepal on the cultural property and social life of the inhabitants in central Nepal through photographs and digital videos – (at Kadambari gallery, DakshinaChitra, 10 am to 6 pm).

Till December 31: Silk Line, an exhibition of collages by K.G. Narendra Babu on woven silk and paintings. The exhibition is a combination of his works using different media like silk weaving, painting and drawing, all finding and lending space to each other and producing a different imagery in totality.
