The show focuses on the fields of Indian and World Cinema, Modern and Contemporary Fine and Popular Arts & Crafts, Photography, Architectural Heritage, Animal Welfare, Ecological Studies, and the Social Sciences. It also has several research materials and art works that are coherently integrated into an exhibition space, expressing the vast and chaotic energy and rhythms grasping the soul of one of the world’s greatest civilisations, where six thousand years are still clearly living and breathing in the modern and contemporary.

It draws on materials belonging to a single vision and collection that positions the contemporary as a living form of the ancient-medieval-modern continuum.

“The exhibition introduces one’s vision to reach out freely step by step, wide and deep, to people, and carry to them a holistic glimpse into the heart, mind and soul of India. It is structured on three levels – the physical object, the archives, and the digital formats – and rooted within the ground and context of sixteen Research Categories which structures the India Studies framework, which my thirty years of understanding India at both theoretical and practical levels has evolved,” says Tuli

On view till March 30, 11:00am to 7.00pm daily
