Art that is prescient of the times

By Avantika Bhuyan | Mint

All through last year, one saw the art world pivot towards the digital, with online viewing rooms (OVR) becoming a new way of showcasing works. Galleries came together in a series of collaborations of all shapes and sizes. Today, even with art spaces opening up, a hybrid model seems to be the norm for the new year, featuring physical exhibitions combined with OVRs and digital talks. Certain digital collaborations from 2020 have spilled into the new year, one such being the ‘In Touch’ series, which brought galleries from India and Dubai onto a single platform. Its latest edition features 13 galleries such as Chatterjee & Lal, Chemould Prescott Road, Experimenter, Green Art Gallery, Gallery Espace, GALLERYSKE, Shrine Empire, Vadehra Art Gallery, and more.
