Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Blending together Indian artistic traditions and Western Modernism, Benode Behari Mukherjee produced a remarkable variety of drawings, collages, wall frescoes and more. Eschewing the mythological subject matter of a lot of the art produced in his native country, the artist focused on nature and the fast-changing world around him. This exhibition, the first solo show in Europe for Mukherjee, shows the collages he made in the 50s and 60s after losing his sight.
