Every single space in the factory in New Delhi — from the ceilings and the basement to walls and bathrooms — serves as a backdrop to art works from across genres. The floors have turned into canvases, installations can be seen jutting out of walls and hanging down from roofs, the staircases have transformed into performance spaces — all this and more at The Irregulars Art Fair (TIAF), the capital’s first ever anti art fair that runs from February 9-11, 2018.

AI is without a doubt efficient. It is fast, precise, and unencumbered by the emotions that cloud human intelligence. Repetitive tasks? An algorithm’s got it covered. Processing data? A computer’s right as Rain Man.
In a bold move, Christopher Bishop Fine Art will anchor its exhibition with just one drawing at the 12th edition of Master Drawings New York (MDNY). The New York-based dealer has spent two years researching a double-sided work that was thought, but not confirmed, to be by the Renaissance painter Jacopo Pontormo. He concluded it is a preparatory drawing for a lost fresco at the Villa di Castello—where Pontormo worked for a period—after determining that it depicts the horoscope of the Florentine patron Duke Cosimo I de’ Medici, the villa’s owner.
It has been announced that Warner Animation Group, the animated film production arm of Warner Bros. Pictures, and Dr. Seuss Enterprises, L.P. are teaming up to produce multiple feature films based on the iconic characters and stories created by Dr. Seuss, aka Theodor Seuss Geisel.
A fully animated version of the children’s classic ‘The Cat in the Hat’ will be the first project developed under this partnership. The beloved character was previously adapted to the big screen with the 2003 live-action movie starring Mike Myers; although it was considered a disappointment.
“Our Pictures Group is home to some of the world’s most popular film franchises, and we’re honoured to add Dr. Seuss titles to that roster,” said Warner Bros Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich. “With Warner Animation Group, we’ve really revitalized our feature animation activities, and this partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises will continue our move into world-class, wide-appeal animated fare.”
