New Delhi, Mar 1 (PTI) A new art exhibition here features seminal works by 49 artists, both celebrated, young and anonymous, in an attempt to capture the elements of fantasy beyond the modernist tenets of surrealism by infusing post-modern, futuristic ideas into oriental storytelling.

"Fantastic Realities and Beyond" by the Centre of International Modern Art (CIMA) at the Visual Arts Gallery has showcased works across 12 decades, beginning from the early twentieth century miniature to highlighting Indian modernist twist on fantasy to contemporary augmented reality.
