Celebrating renowned artist, late Altaf Mohamedi, on the occasion of his 75th birthday, DAG Modern Art Gallery has chosen to display some of his notable artworks titled ‘A Retrospective’. A well-read artist of his time, Altaf was trained in London, and is best recognised for his efforts put in the Matunga Labour Camp as well as slums of Mumbai, but he has also worked with mobile crèches. Altaf has printed counter-revolutionary posters with his wife Navjot and their friends in Proyom (Progressive Youth Movement). His works are strong; they are evocative of his beliefs in the politics of power and corruption, in the marginalisation of the proletariat; and they are haunted by the spectre of death, something that was lacking in Indian art of that time. The exhibition includes his work from 1960s and they mirror his concerns while articulating his own position. Revisit the artistic genius with some of his well-known works at DAG this season.
When: Up to November 1, from 11am to 7pm
Where: DAG, 58, VB Gandhi Marg, Kala Ghoda
