So, Why Is That Art?
For most of us who are not familiar with the art, museums can be intimidating spaces where some of the most obvious questions about the works like “Couldn’t a four-year-old do that?” just lead to a dead end. Fully aware that art doesn’t usually provide its own context, Piramal Museum of Art have created a series of programmes for the public to promote understanding and appreciation, in an effort to make the exhibition fun and interesting for new arts audiences. Featuring key works from the Piramal Art Collection, S.H. Raza: Traversing Terrains traces the artist’s journey from French-trained landscape painter to one of India’s most celebrated abstractionists. On display are works from the early 1940s to the 1990s, showcasing a diverse body of work that amalgamates Raza’s classical French training at École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, with the Indian visual language of his heritage. The exhibition opens to the public from June 24 to October 28, 2018, at Piramal Museum of Art, Lower Parel, Mumbai.
So, We're Saying…
Whether you’re an art aficionado or not, Piramal Museum of Art is worth a visit for a refreshing view of an Indian Master.
