Gulam Mohammed Sheikh's solo exhibition shows an artist at ease in an evolving world

By S Kalidas | India Today
Gulam Mohammed Sheikh's latest exhibition, City, Kavad and other works.

Delhi is the privileged venue of what could easily qualify as perhaps the most significant art exhibition of the season. On view till October 24 at the Lalit Kala Akademi is Gulammohammed Sheikh's CITY, Kavad and Other Works. The exhibition, presented by Vadehra Gallery, is a grand (in scale) and ambitious (in its imaginative span) display of paintings, handmade books, sculptures and art objects made in the form of traditional Rajasthani box-shrines used by itinerant bards called kavads.
