Providing a visual comparative of the iconography associated with each of the emotions – Harmony, Love, Pride, Devotion and Acquiescence – the collection showcases the depth of Indian art from the 1850’s to the present. This Exhibition aims to show the depth of Indian Art in its entirety. The non-chronological display of the artworks, segregated via emotions, which translate themselves into certain physical decipherable forms, allows the viewer to read and dwell into the art itself, rather than assess it pragmatically based on market researches associated with specific artists. A small effort has been made with this exhibition for the art to speak for itself without being weighed down or enhanced by the artists’ biographies. The viewer will then experience art without judgment and/or in comparison to the plethora of stylistic languages through Indian Art.
