" Indian Surrealism: Paintings of Contemporary Indian Aritsts"
2007-12-20 until 2008-01-05
Aakriti Art Gallery
Aakriti Art Gallery in Kolkata, India from December 20, 2007 until January 5, 2008 hosts "Indian Surrealism: Paintings by the Contemporary Indian Artists", curated by Professor Sovon Som. Surrealism, unlike the art movement in Europe exists in Indian visual-arts contemplation from time immemorial. Indian iconography presents a unique panorama of surrealistic images.
Indian epics, legends, rituals and the wide variety of folk arts which thrive as a living tradition, showcase the range of imagination of the Indian mind. Aakriti Art Gallery promotes their artists with a Gallery Portfolio at absolutearts.com.
The term 'Surrealism' as a common currency now. It is taken for granted as a generative force that offers explorations into the plastic possibilities in the visual range. The proposed exhibition intends to present Surrealism as a human predicament in the Indian sensibility.
