No Parsi Is An Island aims to retrieve the lost history, life and often forgotten works of Zoroastrian artists. And the exhibition achieves that goal with ease. Curated by art historian Nancy Adajania and poet, critic Ranjit Hoskote along with Pheroza Godrej, the exhibition attempts to highlight artists that “embody an inspiring model of artistic practice: One that is varied and multi-directional.” On display are works of 14 artists spanning 150 years of art, with paintings such as those by Pestonji Bomanji dating back to the 1880s to those completed as recent as a month ago by artist Mehlli Gobhai, spanning diverse artistic material.
