Knight Frank India, Lodha Group and Bina Aziz (Artra Palettes) bring to you an Art Preview featuring works by Modern and Contemporary artists. The preview will be on from March 11-16 at The Art Lounge, World Crest (The World Towers, Lodha Place, SB Marg, Upper Worli, Mumbai – 400013) from 11am-6pm. The exhibition is held in celebration of the launch of the Knight Frank Wealth Report 2017.
This exhibition is an amalgamation of works by renowned artists including three generations of the Husain family whose works are being exhibited together for the very first time – Late M. F. Husain along with Late Shamshad Husain, Owais Husain, Salamat Husain. Also on display will be works by Bhupen Khakhar, Brinda Miller, Helmut Zwerger, Jaideep Mehrotra, Gurcharan Singh, Seema Kohli, Madhvi Parekh, Jogen Chowdhury, Prokash Karmakar and Sakti Burmanamongst others. Apart from art, the preview will include a silent auction of autographed memorabilia by Late M F Husain (his first Paint brush and armchair), Sania Mirza (Jersey) and Chris Gayle (Cricket Bat).
The exhibition is curated by Bina Aziz , celebrated art curator, philanthropist, entrepreneur and artist who is also showcasing two of her works in this exhibition.
Speaking about the art preview, Bina Aziz says, “Art is another form of expression where the artist speaks without speaking and is heard without listening whether it’s a painting, photography, sculpture or a drawing. The language is universal. It takes years to develop the knowledge, taste, relationships and vision that culminate in a successfully curated show and I have put these works of varied styles together keeping the art connoisseurs and their sensibilities in mind. We will also be contributing part proceeds of the sales to ‘Nanhi Kali’ towards the education of underprivileged girl children and I hope our patrons will generously support this noble cause.”
The exhibition also marks the inauguration of the Art Lounge at Lodha World Crest, an elegantly curated space offering a banquet of opportunities to the connoisseurs of culture.
