Art and storytelling

Some of you may know that my beloved wife, Jasmine, earns her living as an art curator. Well, she's put together an exhibition titled "In Short" that begins today at the Hacienda gallery in Mumbai and continues until the end of this month. The premise of the show is fascinating: she asked 25 artists to come up with a series of small-format works inspired by literature. Works by Ernest Hemingway, Italo Calvino, Haruki Murakami, Somerset Maugham and Arundhati Roy, among others, inspired the work that emerged. You can check out some of it here.

If you are in Mumbai, drop in and check it out, it's good stuff. To get to Hacienda, go to Kala Ghoda, walk past Rhythm House, and take the first left after the Noodle Bar.
