The allegation, made by an art world professional, was shared on the anonymously-run Instagram account ‘Scene and Herd’ late October 16. In the post, the woman described being pushed against a wall and kissed by the artist.
The masses wouldnt go to galleries,so artwork stepped outside. In a cash-crunched market,worrying itself sick over the coming recessionary year,artists began to think out of the art circuit. Prices were slashed,experts began to hold talks with the uninitiated,even paperbacks on fine art hit the bookstores. Globally noted sculptor Anish Kapoor came to India for his first solo here; the scale and intensity of his ideas and works left art lovers reeling. MF Husain and Jehangir Sabavala passed on,leaving the canvas blank for a new subject to be painted on it.
