What is real and what is fiction? What is physical, what is metaphorical? These are such questions that a new show, Dream landscapes, seeks to answer. Hosted by Tao Art Gallery, it features works by Argentinian artist Julia Romano, finalist for the Arte Laguna 20.21 Prize, and Meghna Patpatia, based in Mumbai. Both combine existing elements with surreal aspects of mythology and anthropology.
Tao Art Gallery, Mumbai, until November 25, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily

THE BLUE COLOR
DAG presents an exhibit that explores the nuances of the color blue, which seems to be woven into the very fabric of the country – from the costume of BR Ambedkar to the shades of Koh-i-noor, the goddess Kali and peacock feathers – and the fourth color of the Indian flag. Title Indian blue: from realism to abstraction, the show unveils a range of practices for examining the history of color in India and around the world.
The Claridges, Delhi, until December 1, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily
