Stuart Freedman: The Palaces of Memory
Tasveer is delighted to present a new exhibition, Stuart Freedman: The Palaces of Memory - Tales from the Indian Coffee House, in Chennai – on view from 17th to 23rd January at The Folly, Amethyst.
The Palaces of Memory presents Stuart Freedman's photographs taken between 2010 and 2013 of some of the most iconic Indian Coffee Houses across the country. Documenting the architecture and interiors of the coffee shops – which are found in different places, from the tops of shopping malls to historic art deco buildings – the series also highlights that these once-thriving cafes are increasingly threatened in a commercialised world of western franchises.
Limited edition prints are available for sale. For more information, please write to us at info | tasveerarts ! com. The accompanying publication, which carries a foreword by Amit Chaudhuri and an essay by Freedman, is available at the Tasveer Bookstore: bit.ly/2wRDLl9.
The Palaces of Memory forms part of Tasveer’s twelfth season of travelling exhibitions supported by Dauble.
