One of India's leading galleries based in Bengaluru and Chennai, Art Houz, and a pan-India magazine, 'Arts Illustrated,' dedicated to the different facets of contemporary art, are hosting their first-ever travel show-cum-exhibition, curated by Poornima Shivram.
The publication has been working on a collectors edition called AI 100 in the past year, a coffee table book containing a collection of a hundred artists across India, including Vijay Pichumani, Dhan Prasad, and PJ Stalin. Recently the book was launched in Chennai and made its way to Hyderabad as part of the exhibition being held at the Jubilee Hills' State Gallery of Art till April 9.'AI 100' is a book that attempts to record the dialogue that the artist has with his/her canvas. It is a visual chronicle of contemporary art that digs deep into the artists' curiosity to preserve and express their culture, identity, and connection to their community and land.
In consonance with the vision of 'Arts Illustrated,' 'AI 100' explores the narrative of visual art, offering a contemporary and global perspective. Taking on the dynamic and topical ideas currently shaping the cultural landscape, it presents a curated collection that makes for an enthralling visual treat.
The exhibition was inaugurated by the chief guest, Udit Dugar, vice-president of Operations, Pernod Ricard, along with the CMD of Art Houz, Vincent Adaikalraj.
