In ArtAsiaPacific’s September/October issue, frequent contributor Alessandra Alliata Nobili reviews Subodh Gupta’s “In This Vessel Lies the Philosopher’s Stone at Galleria Continua, San Gimignano: “Though [the exhibition] lacked the spectacle normally expected from Gupta’s landmark installations, the show’s venue offered an engaging environment that housed subtler artworks—ones that were meditative and lyrical. The artist condensed weighty cogitations to an intimate scale, but still served up humor before steering his viewer toward loftier thoughts suffused with mysticism.
