Rohit Chawla On Art
I generally don’t go for exhibitions twice. However, I broke that rule for Ashish Soni’s installation Absolut Soni: 20 years in Fashion — Retrospective Exhibit, at the Aman Hotel, New Delhi. A first-rate show, it could easily be in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, or any other internationally renowned gallery or museum. It makes mincemeat out of the mediocre exhibitions by other, usually better, artists. It showcases 20 years of his life in the fashion industry, and incorporates some of his greatest work. The colour palette is black and white with a superb finish. It is one of the best things I have seen by a designer.
