Concept Note

After an all-embracing study for the five minds through ground-breaking projects that reach out to the sixth sense, or instinct, Noida international Literature Festival – Vibhor, will present: The Special Vitrine.


Curatorially focused, the exhibition will explore how instinct has, in some form, shaped art from corner to corner, civilizations and generations. It will carry collectively historic, modern and contemporary works related to the concept of instinct, dreams, meditation, creative power and inspiration. The Special Vitrine is the ability to attain comprehension devoid of evidence, or conscious reasoning: a sensation that guides a person to act in a definite manner without fully understanding why.

The concept has been developed through installations, talks and by allowing people to experience new ways of seeing, simply to find means of relating with the intuitive responses to create the ultimate multi-sensory experiences.


Art on Display

Each art piece at The Special Vitrine is inspired by a desire to trace the multidisciplinary route that epitomize life in art. The theme is therefore a perfect topic to explore in relation to the versatile and mysterious identity of the great Royalties of South Asia. The exhibition starts a many-faceted project which intends to provide now and in future years of a portrait of important Royals of contemporary art by presenting their valuable art collections.

The exhibition’s aim is to examine the question: how has the role of the Royalties evolved from the time of the great Renaissance collections to the present day?
