Nandalal Bose at Akar Prakar
January 27 @ 10:00 am - February 28 @ 7:00 pm
This current exhibition, curated by Debdutta Gupta, attempts to highlight how cards/postcards bring out tangents of Nandalal Bose that have remained unnoticed otherwise. It also attempts to bring to light Nandalal’s departure from the earlier influence of Abanindranath Tagore to the influences that Ramakrishna, Rabindranath and Gandhi had on his art practice. It highlights Nandalal’s search for spirituality within nature and the establishment of the Asian aesthetic mode. The exhibition thus showcases how all these tangents are present throughout his works and some of the best can be found in his cards and postcards.
