Gallery West End Presents: Détente: A Haven of Artistic Rhapsody

New Delhi, 22nd April 2024 – Gallery West End, founded by Mr. Sumer Raj Chadha, a third-generation art collector and entrepreneur, is pleased to announce its upcoming art show, “Détente: A Haven of Artistic Rhapsody” show is set to debut at Travancore Palace, KG Marg, New Delhi, opening on May 1st, 2024, and will continue at Gallery West End from May 6th till 15th May 2024. The gallery, located in New Delhi, has established itself as a venue that showcases modern and contemporary, Indian and International art by master artists, as well as senior contemporary, and emerging artists.

‘Détente’ aspires to steward as a conduit for the spectators to traverse through the exhibit and experience a diverse array of artistic themes, where the fixtures and frames emanate with vibrant hues of creativity and echoes of diverse narratives. Each artist and their work reflects a unique perspective on evolution, the living world’s complexion, sum and substance, culture, societal constructs, social cloth, and beyond. Marvel at surreal landscapes that transport you to distant realms, creative interpretations on folklore, primal instincts, cultural heritage, personal and archival experiences, emotions, and the subconscious mind. Each of these influences offers immersive insights into the awe-inspiring macrocosm that is the creative universe. Here, reality merges with fantasy, inviting you to ponder the mysteries of the mind’s eye.

The exhibition offers interactive elements that enable the audience to directly engage with select artworks by the artists in focus. Invitees will not only have the opportunity to observe the artistic process up close but also have the choice to acquire the works to adorn their personal spaces, alongside the chance to interact directly with some of our guest artists.

Sumer Raj Chadha, the propelling founder of Gallery West End expresses “This exhibit is a tribute to a true art aficionado and a fervent connoisseur of beauty, our vanguard, late Santosh Raj Chadha, my beloved grandmother. She sowed the seed of love for art and has been a custodian of creative curiosity in our family. I endeavour to honour her legacy and to carry forward her ignited artistic discernments”

The exhibit unfolds as an immersive experience, inviting spectators to delve into realms of exploration, connection, and inspiration. Whether you’re a seasoned art enthusiast or appreciative of visual art and aesthetics, we warmly invite you to join us on May 1st at Gallery West End for an unparalleled journey into the depths of artistic wonder.
