Urban narratives always make for a talking point in art. Field of Vision brings together six artists who expand this dialogue


Reports show that jungle animals are beginning to adapt to city life to survive; it is estimated that by 2050, 65% to 80% of humanity will live in urban centres. Field of Vision, curated by Jasmine Shah Varma, brings together six artists whose works feature powerful urban narratives: Anjana Mehra, Gautam Bhatia, Indrapramit Roy, Jaideep Mehrotra, Meera Devidayal and Shilpa Gavane. Their art explores the city in it’s myriad dimensions, its past and present and its metaphorical implications through recognised emblems in various media such as painting, sculpture, mixed media works and photographs.

Catch Field of Vision at Gallery Art and Soul, Worli, Mumbai from October 14 to November 15, 2014.
