Event Description : Burnish/Tarnish, a group art show, brings together twenty-three of the best known and most original voices from India and the subcontinent. Metal is the focus of the show, which opens on September 19 and runs through October The featured artists explore metal as material and subject, using a variety of mediums including sculpture, painting, photography, video and installation. They  employ the entire gamut of commonly used metallic elements and alloys, including gold, silver, copper, bronze, iron and steel.

The artists represented in Burnish / Tarnish are (in alphabetical order) Adeela Suleman, Anant Joshi, Atul Dodiya, Bharti Kher, Chittrovanu Mazumdar, G. R. Iranna, George K., Gigi Scaria, Himmat Shah, Jagannath Panda, Manish Nai, Manjunath Kamath, Mithu Sen, Pooja Iranna, Ranbir Kaleka, Rathin Barman, Ravinder Reddy, Riyas Komu, Saravanan Parasuraman, Subodh Gupta, Tayeba Begum Lipi, Vibha Galhotra and Zarina Hashmi.

The youngest of them, Manish Nai, Rathin Barman and Saravanan Parasuraman, all in their 30s, are steadily building a following among art lovers. The most senior, Himmat Shah and Zarina Hashmi, are octogenarians and revered masters. Two foreign artists have contributed works: Adeela Suleman from Karachi in Pakistan and Tayeba Begum Lipi, who lives and works in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The exhibition provides a mix of signature styles and innovative departures. Among the instantly identifiable displays are Atul Dodiya’s inimitable painterly blend of politics and art history, Bharti Kher’s vivid composition of bindis, Chittrovanu Mazumdar’s large-scale, freestanding sculpture employing industrial materials, Pooja Iranna’s high-rises painstakingly created from staple pins, Ranbir Kaleka’s shimmering video projection on painted canvas, Ravinder Reddy’s gold-leaf covered woman’s head, Subodh Gupta’s evocative assemblage of vessels used to store or pour water, and Vibha Galhotra’s planet shaped from ghungroos.

The paintings of G. R. Iranna, Jagannath Panda, and Manjunath Kamath create spaces for the contemplation of beauty, while Anant Joshi, George K., Gigi Scaria, Mithu Sen, and Riyas Komu comment on India’s society, history and politics, their statements ranging from wry to hard hitting.

Burnish / Tarnish is an impressive collection of mature artists working at the top of their game, and underlines the strength and depth of Indian contemporary art.
