‘Brief Parables of Dystopia’ is a panoramic view of few such interpretations that recount as well as predict our lived lives. The artists in this exhibition are storytellers, each weaving their own tapestry of dystopia, forging their own myths and protagonists, sometimes in myriad gestures of figuration and at others in the stillness of abstraction. They collectively represent a spectrum of contemporary Indian artists across ages and mediums which have been brought together in a unique pluralistic unison.
