Exhibition to celebrate Raza's plural vision of art

IANS  |  New Delhi 

In line with late S.H. Raza's vision of plural art, a group exhibition by 21 artists will celebrate individual voices of art, expressed on canvas.

The show, organised by the Raza Foundation, will run through on February 22.

'Individual Palettes' has been curated by veteran Rameshwar Broota, and features his young and old mentees. It opens for public at the Triveni Kala Sangam here on Friday.

For Broota, who has been heading the and Studio at the Triveni Kala Sangam since many decades now, and whose art oeuvre is full of experiments itself, the idea of mentorship is not one where artists are encouraged to clone the guru, but to find their individual voices.

"had a very plural idea of art, and despite being an abstractionist, he was open to figurative and non-figurative art. The exhibition brings together individual palettes, and that is how it relates to his vision," Managing told IANS.

"Each represented in this exhibition is highly individualistic and driven by a strong sense of self. (The selection) reflects their individual nature that is born out of the higher-calling of the aesthetic mingling with the quotidian," a note on the exhibition by said.

Artists like Shruti Gupta Chandra, Vasundhara Tiwari-Broota, Valentina Churilova, Sanjay Roy, Meena Deora, Prathibha Singh, and belong to a tradition of figurative painting and an evolved sense of humanism underpins their primary concerns.

Satish Sharma, Neerja Divate, Surendar Kaur, Prabha Shah, and are neo-abstractionists who unleash the spirit of inquisitiveness through a quest for the deeper subconscious truth that goes beyond a narrative style, Maddox wrote.

Anju Kaushik stands apart and her approach is one of abstraction through reclaimed objects.

The show, opened by eminent Paramjit Singh, will run from February 15 to 28 and is part of the third edition of Raza Utsav, an ongoing festival of visual arts, ideas, poetry, classical music and classical dance.
