Dosed: A Bicycle Day Special Microdrop

16-30 April, 2021

Method Bandra, Shop No.5, Pearl Haven Apartments, Chapel Road, Bandra West, Mumbai, India

Method Bandra’s latest exhibition of works by twelve Indian artists pays tribute to Dr. Albert Hoffman’s famous bicycle ride from April 1943.

Dr. Hoffman, a Swiss chemist, synthesised Lysergic Acid Diethylamide in 1938 as a medical stimulant. His first bicycle ride after a dose of this acid revealed its psychedelic nature and became popular as the Bicycle Day.

Taking a critical look at the culture that developed around this controversial substance, Method Bandra presents works printed on perforated blotting paper, promising a visual psychedelic trip. Artists include Kim Kaul, Kunel Gaur, Osheen Siva, Priyesh Trivedi, Rema Chaudhary, Rohan Joglekar, RuiningMagazines, Santanu Hazarika, Sid G, Tarini Sethi, thebigfatminimalist and Tyler Street Art.
