What is it?
This year, making art an accessible and inclusive affair, DAG Modern has created a session–Abhas, opening up the world of art to the visually impaired, and also sensitising the sighted to an alternative way of experiencing art.
The session will include a gallery walk, both for the sighted and visually impaired, and a 30-minute talk about the development of this process.
In a specially-designed 400 sqm space, DAG Modern is displaying some of the most iconic works of 20th century Indian modern art by Amrita Sher-Gil, MV Dhurandhar, rare works by Jamini Roy, GR Santosh, MF Husain, FN Souza; European artists painting in India such as Thomas Daniell, Henry Singleton and Hickey Thomas, a huge suite of Kalighat paintings, a scroll by Bishnupada Roy Chowdhury and so much more. Phew.
Who is it for?
For anyone who interested in art and is going to the India Art Fair. And by anyone, we actually mean anyone.
Why should I go for it?
The session will also include a Braille section in the DAG newsletter that will be released during the course of the India Art Fair. It will include gallery work details, artist biographies and daily updates.
Apart from this, DAG Modern has created two distinctive display areas with a separate focus on Indian Modern Art.
DAG Modern is also doing curated walks for special corporate groups and students.
