Going back to art school movement
While there is nothing new about alumni meets and school / college reunions, some reunions lead to art exhibitionsWhile there is nothing new about alumni meets and school / college reunions, some reunions lead to art exhibitions.
When a group of seven artists who studied at Maharaja Sayajirao University's Faculty of Fine Arts in Baroda, met up after several years, they recounted their time at art school.
Pushpamala N's Cycling Friends
That discussion led to the exhibition Back To School: Baroda 1979-1989, co-curated by Veer Munshi and Ranjit Hoskote. It celebrates the most seminal decade in the history of one of India's premier art schools and will feature artworks by 23 of India's best-known painters, sculptors, printmakers and installation artists.
The line-up includes artists such as Akkitham Vasudevan, BV Suresh, Jayashree Chakravarty, Anita Dube, Rajeev Lochan, Veer Munshi, N Pushpamala and Rekha Rodwittiya.
The event is organised by Foundation B&G, a contemporary arts publishing and curatorial platform launched in January 2009, and is an initiative of Popular Prakashan.
