For Delhiites who have a love for Indian folk & tribal art, a new and intriguing exhibition is taking place. Titled “DEVI: Depicted through Folk & Tribal Art, Calendar Art and Lobby Cards”, the exhibition is curated by art historian Dr Seema Bhalla. It is currently welcoming visitors at the India International Centre in Max Muller Marg, New Delhi.
The exhibition is also a treat for those who nurse a fascination with the representation of the goddess art in Indian culture. The most attractive feature of this exhibition is the various creative forms in which the goddess figure is represented.
From goddess busts, naturally pubic-shaped sea coconuts and film posters printed on cards to miniatures and vertical scrolls which tell us a story upon unfolding, the variety in these different forms of art are exquisite and rich in history. Against one of the walls of the hall, a television is installed which plays a film starring Meena Kumari as a goddess.
The expertly-researched installation saw its inauguration on Friday, 17th December. The display will continue on till Wednesday, December 29.
