The Virtual Capital

One of the country’s best-known art venues, Delhi-based Vadehra Art Gallery is launching a platform for online exhibitions, titled Virtual, which means you do not have to travel to the capital to attend its shows. The first exhibition in the series is by Sujith SN titled Act II: Emphasizing Stillness. Sujith is inspired by everyday places and people, and reflects on recent world events involving the pandemic. His works set out to capture movement in stillness and move away from his previous minimalism for a visual language that is full of implied narrative on a more elaborate scale.
