Delhi’s Palette Art Gallery has reopened with Long Story Short—a cross-generational group exhibition that explores narrative painting and varied patterns of visual storytelling, exemplified in the work of both modern and contemporary artists. The exhibition features artworks by Amit Ambalal, Arpita Singh, Bupen Khakhar, K.G. Subramanian, Gopikrishna, B.V. Shweta, K.P. Prasad, R. Magesh, Madhu Venugopalan, P.S. Jalaja and Umesh P.K.
Established in 2001 by designers Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna, the Palette Gallery is an extension of their long alliance with art collecting, and foray into promoting and exhibiting. Fifteen years on and after an interim break of three years, the gallery has opened again with an exhibition of artists that represents the gallery’s vision—highlighting the modernist aesthetic, which remains rooted in the Indian political and cultural landscape alongside a more current global pulse. “The quality of art has always been paramount for us, irrespective of industry trends, genre or seniority of an artist. We take a keen interest in growing with our artists and have built lasting relationships with them as well as with other gallerists, critics and curators. We believe in a healthy art fraternity, one that we can contribute to, and learn from”, said Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna in a joint statement.
The exhibition is on view till 8 October at Palette Art Gallery, New Delhi
