Dear Artists, Gallery Owners, and  Art Lovers

Medley Arts is proud to announce their first Exhibition and Art Contest at our newly renovated Haveli Art Gallery.  Haveli is located in Shekhawati, a sim dedicated to the art, culture and architecture of India and the South Asian sub-continent.

The first floor of of Haveli Art Gallery is organised with traditional Indian paintings.  The Exhibition and Contest will take place on the second floor. 


Exhibition and Contest:

The title of the contemporary art contest and exhibition is 'Inspired by Mythology'.  

Ancient myth has always provided fertile ground for artists and theorists of the visual.  However, current writing on contemporary art is, with few exceptions, curiously devoid of mythological content, despite demonstrable interest in myth on the part of several contemporary artists, ranging from earlier figures such as Louise Bourgeois and Cy Twombly to more recent arrivals such as Gregory Crewdson, Fred Wilson, Bill Viola, Ann Hamilton, and John Currin.   While some artists’ work invokes the power of classical European mythology explicitly, as in an expressly narcissistic video by Patty Chang (Fountain, 1999) or an Orpheus-inspired installation by Felix Gonzales-Torres (Untitled (Orpheus, Twice), 1991), others gesture toward myth in more subtle ways, as do for example, Gerhard Richter’s mirrored installations and paintings.
