In the Presence of Another Sky
Art Musings is proud to announce its upcoming exhibition ‘In the Presence of Another Sky: Sakti Burman, A Retrospective’, a survey of the distinguished artist Sakti Burman’s work across nearly six decades. To be held at the National Gallery of Modern Art, Mumbai, this retrospective exhibition will be curated by poet and cultural theorist Ranjit Hoskote. It will situate Sakti Burman’s practice in its historical contexts – as much within an evolving Indian modern as within the European lineage of the modern. Hoskote’s curatorial reading emphasises Burman’s affinities with a spectrum of artistic reference points, ranging from Pompeii murals to Dubuffet to illuminated manuscripts and miniatures. The exhibition will map Burman’s practice across the diverse artistic engagements that have characterized his journey: this includes his memorable contributions to engraving, the art of the book, drawing, sculpture, and painting in various media.
