While some museums are closed again due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that remain open as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.
This show inaugurates two new galleries at the Peabody Essex Museum, providing a focused look at its collection of South Asian art and tracing the history of art on the subcontinent from the 19th century through to the present day. Highlights include works by key figures in the post-war Bombay Progressives group such as S.H. Raza; the tantra-inspired abstract works of Biren De and Ghulam Rasool Santosh from the 1970s; and more recent figurative works by artists such as Nalini Malani. The exhibition runs from 27 November to 1 October 2022; find out more from the Peabody Essex Museum’s website.
