Shraddha Rathi explores the concept of gratitude, an expressive emotion towards an appreciation of life and for tangible and intangible gifts, in her new suite of works. She creates a narrative which is rich in emotional content and universal in its reach. From personal notes to community messages, the expanse of storytelling weaves a rich tapestry of chronicles, patterns and motifs of human sentiments, moments and memories.

Thirty years after opening its doors, The Peninsula New York celebrates it’s anniversary with an exhibition of famous artists. It is free and can be seen in the public spaces of the building. Prominent and original works of Andy Warhol, Francesco Clemente, Keith Haring, Jean-Michael Basquiat, Barbara Kruger and Michael Halsband invite you to go back in time the early years of the hotel, the 1980’s. With their reputation of exclusiveness, The Peninsula New York has chosen an ambitious and superb melange of famous and skilled artists.
While in Brussels last month, i went to BOZAR to see Somewhere In Between, an exhibition that “provides a unique window on today’s artistic hotbeds of Europe.” I found the show to be surprisingly good. There were moments when i despaired that i’d never truly understand contemporary art. And moments when i got happy, excited and genuinely amazed. I was particularly impressed with a row of sweatpants neatly aligned on one of the walls of the exhibition space.
