When various forms of the arts merge something magical happens be it at Art Mumbai where galleries and fashion intertwined, celebrating 30 years of Tarun Tahiliani. Or Nisargra Art Hub where architect Vinu Daniel was deeply inspired by music as he created a home/space for a Karnatic musician family. He let the pauses of music merge with the practical needs of their clients and the demands of an eco-conscious world. Vivek Narain and Sonya Jehan, founders of Quorum, present another eclectic cultural hub, District150, in Hyderabad. Once again design, culture and arts merge to form a space that is creatively designed to offer not only meeting spaces but also entertainment, presenting a work to play culture, all in one space.
We also present a young motley crew of debutants who intrigue us with their artistry. Be it Dibakar Roy's debut film Dilli Dark, a dark comedy or Kuhu Joshi's debut book of poetry My Body Didn't Come Before Me, a deep poignant collection inspired from her own reality. Sheherazaad, an experimental audio-visual artist drops her latest album, Qasr, produced by Grammy winner Arooj Aftab, where she explores themes of institutional narcissism, insanity, language violence, and diaspora. Immerse yourself in our many other stories of diverse talents and narratives that promise to captivate, inspire, and entertain.
