An(other) Story: Folk and Tribal arts in India

An(other) Story: Folk and Tribal arts in India

Monday 18 July - Friday 30 September 2011

Even though artists in India have been practising their folk and tribal art for centuries, the world at large has only come to know about it in the last 50 years.

Now their work is exhibited at major contemporary art galleries around the world.

This exhibition explores the diversity of folk and tribal art styles and techniques which have been embraced for centuries throughout India, including Madhubani / Mithila, Gond, Warli, Patua scrolls and folk embroidery.

An(other) Story was originally curated by David Schischka Thomas and Saleem Arif Quadri MBE for an exhibition at the New Art Exchange, Nottingham in 2009.

Free Preview evening - all welcome, Friday 15 July
