Move over Picasso and other moderns. It’s time for a 500-year-old masterpiece to take the crowning glory in the hands of the invincible genius Leonardo da Vinci. When he wrote: ‘Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication,’ he gave the world a tablet of philosophy that we could live by. Leonardo’s Salvator Mundi took the art world by storm at New York last night as it became the most expensive work of art ever sold at auction.
Just as his show Shunya Ghar opens at the Dr Bhau Daji Lad Mumbai City Museum, Sudarshan Shetty—the pioneer of contemporary art installations in India—gives an exclusive interview to AD about the exhibition and the method behind the process.

Artist-activist, essayist, thinker, and mentor, KG Subramanyan is a man of many moods. To look at any work by the artist is to be invited into the realm of multiple personalities that are born out of the past and the present. “Seeking a Poetry of the Real”, which looks at the works created by the late artist from the 1970s, is an illustration of his basic belief that all growing traditions have a resilience that dictates innovation through simplicity of divergent practices.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
