IMPERFECTLY PERFECTGROUP SHOW 25 Sep - 4 Nov 2023 Imperfectly Perfect
A Group of six Artists in collaboration with Studio Art.
Remen Chopra W. Van Der Vaart
The title of the exhibition contains within it a conundrum, for how can something be simultaneously perfect and flawed? It is on the one hand authentic and on the other entirely subjective. The acknowledgement of the “imperfectly perfect" is a quest for beauty and joy and the liberation from a fruitless search for an ideal. The Japanese concept of wabi-sabi encourages the appreciation of imperfection, negating ideas of perfection and permanence. It is the imperfection that makes something meaningful and precious, signposting its existence, its purpose, a life lived.

TRUTH OR DARECurated by Sandeep Biswas 10 Apr - 10 Jun 2023 Studio Art presents "Truth or Dare”, an exhibition of visual stories by a few women photographers and filmmakers, who have sensitively explored this changing world of women from various stratas of life in India. These are a few success stories of these handful of individuals who gathered immense strength and courage to fight, break out and create a change within their lives in a strongly conventional patriarchal society. These images depict a new modern era of gender egalitarianism and societal evolution, as a much desired achievement for humanity. Yet, a lot needs to be pondered upon before we call ourselves a fair and an evolved race.
