“Saleem uses pen and ink on paper to draw contemporary forms and then clothes them in words and text that is drawn from newspapers. The ideas and objects encountered in everyday life are conveyed in great detail and cleverly sheathed with newspaper text – challenging the viewer to introspect on current issues…..” – Ravi Cavale
Opening night on 30th September, 8.00 pm.The Young Talent Program is a new project of the Alliance française that aims to promote the local visual artists of Bangalore through a unique platform that will showcase 6 to 8 exhibitions each year of some of the most promising young artists. Curated by Franck Barthélémy, Balan Nambiar and Ravi Cavale, the program intends to push and support the career of the selected artists and to diffuse more widely their work by giving them a field and a place to express their art.
