New Delhi: Currently on view at Latitude 28New Delhi, is a group show of Pakistani artists curated by Ambereen Karamat. Gallery director Bhavna Kakar says, “Crossing Over is the bringing of disparate artworks intended to explore new meanings that at times merge and diverge creating crossovers with each other on irregularly chartered routes; the exhibition hopes to explore these new meanings fashioned within the boundaries effervescing globally.”

The key element is the combining of established and emerging artists, to meet at a transit threshold. The exhibition focuses on new works at the point that acts as a bridge, a crossing over, to the other direction. With common use of visual references to images that work enigmatically around us in multiple layers, the artists have tinged this imperceptible relation between art and reality.
