A memoir of Delhi
New Delhi, Nov 10 (IANS) The beauty of Delhi is engulfed in its powerful history, bygone monuments, scrumptious foods and of course the diversity of cultures. A photography exhibition here showcases a memoir of the city.
The art exhibition, titled “Delhi”, that presents the memories and reflections of the beautiful city, is on view at the Pullman Hotel in Aerocity till November 20.
It adds elements of local interest, culture intrigue and visual ingenuity to the hotel’s communal space as a real need has been identified to facilitate the implementation of arts within the hotels.
“Pullman Hotels and Resorts have an incredible affiliation to design, art, photography and local culture and collaborate with artists and designers around the world to help bring its design vision to life,” said the Hotel General Manager Tristan Beau De Lomenie.
A series of art events at the hotel will focus on contemporary art in India. The lower ground floor around the courtyard will be called “Pullman New Delhi Aerocity Art Zone”. Ina Puri is the curator of art exhibitions for the months of October, November, and December.
“Curatorially it is a challenge to see what the city of Delhi means to different people. From early times to the present day, the city has tolerated individual patterns of life, eccentricities, passions, obsessions and expressions of love,” Puri said.
“We have asked photographers to share their personal vision/idea of the capital city and what it means to them – to claim ownership of a city that belongs to all and none. Cool and edgy, the images will present plural views of the city that have rarely been seen before,” she added.
“Delhi” features eminent artists including Raghu Rai, Amit Mehra, Dinesh Khanna, Nemai Ghosh, Paresh Maity, Nitin Rai, Saba Hasan, Gopi Gajwani, Akhil Syngal, Nabarun Mookerjee, Nandini Keswani, Nitin Choudhary, Claudia Sanchez de la Barquera, Kartik Wahie, Nikhil Ohri, Anupam Mallick and Sahil Solanki.
