Tracing the movement of contemporary art
Art lovers can witness a visual bonanza at 'Kalabimb-18', an exposition by 20 artists conceived with a view, to bring to the audience, a collection of artworks which in many ways provide insights into the contemporary art movement in India today.
The exhibition will take place from January 8 to 13 at India Habitat Centre. It traces a time-line of developments in style, themes and schools of what has emerged today as Indian contemporary art, in their visual languages as paintings, sculptures, photographs, and mix media.
The striking feature of the works of the participating artists is the manner in which they straddle diverse cultures whilst still voicing the present context of Indian social, cultural and political life. The canvases provide an introspective and sometimes, uneasy glimpse into modern India; yet are collectively global in their presentation. This exhibition is a recognition of and respect for the influential antecedents of this genre of art. Clearly, the map has changed as these works demonstrate figurative, abstract, impatient yet unhurried, ancient spirituality fused with modern culture.
Finetouch has endeavoured to present this exhibition of Indian contemporary art, fusing together some of the finest works from well-established artists with a range of the most promising talent across the country. Artists whose work will be displayed are Anita Goyal, Arup K. Biswas, Ashish Deshmukh, Balwinder Tanwar Chander Shekhar, Dalip Chandoliya, Inderjeet Grover, Ravindra Kumar Tanwar and many more. Arvind Kumar (IAS), Saurabh Chaudhary, IIS (Deputy Director, DD News, Prasar Bharti), Mr. Suraj Prakash, Director, Bal Bharti Public School will be the guest of honour.
