A captivating landscape of contemporary art is taking over Delhi this month, and the annual Delhi Contemporary Art Week is leading the charge. Every year, Delhi-based art galleries come together at DCAW to resurrect the discourse on unbridled artistic talent in South Asian countries. In 2023, 6 prominent galleries shining a light on contemporary art practices—Vadehra Art Gallery, Blueprint12, Exhibit 320, Gallery Espace, Latitude 28 and Shrine Empire—introduce fresh, emerging voices across South Asia in a kaleidoscope of mediums, styles and themes, igniting a city-wide (and nation-wide) fervour centred around contemporary art.

In addition to exhibitions by these six partner galleries, a group show curated by Girish Shahane aptly entitled ‘Conjunction of the Spheres’ locates itself at the intersection of ancient Mesopotamian cultures, spirituality and a discourse on the role of divinities and Babylonian cosmography. “The choice of the theme was made because it is capacious enough to accommodate a wide variety of practices, as demanded of a show that is a collaboration between six galleries with disparate programmes, while also being cohesive enough to bring varied artistic styles together into a unified visual experience,” says Girish Shahane.

A modern reinterpretation of Begampura undergirds Dalit Dreamlands: Toward an Anti-Caste Future, a multimedia group art show currently on display in downtown Oakland.
