WHAT WE RECOMMEND THIS WEEKEND

Where We're Competing | 1701 is one of the three brands taking part in the design concept store at India Art Fair this year, and they're making things interesting! Tag pictures of yourself at the art fair, and hashtag it #1701artspotting. At the end of the fair, whoever tagged the most creative picture would get a 1701 camera bag with their initials embossed on it! Might have to finally a buy a camera now.

ST+ART Delhi | Lady Aiko is coming! For the uninitiated, she's the founder of FAILE, the Japanese tourist in 'Exit Through the Gift Shop' by Banksy and the lady who photographed Banksy doing an unauthorised installation at MOMA! Why we're telling you this? Because she's coming to Delhi, and needs volunteers! Send them an email at team@at-artindia.org and you could be working with the stencil art master herself this festival.
