On 5 September, we will be opening the magnificent exhibition Kolkata: Run in the Alley, created by twenty or so artists from India and the Netherlands, about the metropolis of Kolkata. The exhibition presents contemporary applications of ancient Indian crafts alongside agitprop posters, paintings made using natural pigments, cutting-edge textile designs, refined erotic silhouettes, inlaid floors, and beautiful sculptures in bronze and cardboard. Teams of Indian and Dutch artists will compose and stage the exhibition, providing intimate drawing rooms, cartoon salons surrounded by bamboo walls, busy passageways with neon light, specially made floors, and poster walls.
