About Us

  History of Indian Art is as old as the Indian civilization itself and every major period of history has given India newer modes of expression and newer forms of art. The influence of modern art was felt long before Independence in cities like Mumbai, Calcutta, Madras, where school of art were established by the British. The Bombay Art Society was founded in 1888, which was the most crucial phase when India was approaching Independence from the colonial rule when the Indian Art was pregnant with discontinuities, conflicts and high points. The shifting positions of revivalist and anti-revivalist stands shared by the artists of from various parts of the sub-continent further enhanced the complexity of the evolution of art during that time.

A secret or shadow history is a revisionist interpretation of either fictional or real history, which is been intentionally suppressed or disregarded by established scholars. Seven artists representing a generation have been invited to resonate this subject to create new site specific workspresenting their thoughts on their own history and external reality.

There are several agendas for shadow histories like manipulation of facts used to de-legitimize sections of society or in pursuit of nationalist agenda, those in power make circumstances for interpretation of history. Either the sinister use of censorshipor in poetic spirit where there is a belief that we can reach an altered state of consciousness in which we can see the way the world works. This involves questioning the impression of legacy, not in the sense of an unambiguous communication, but rather releasing of multiple processes, giving rise to a metamorphic and retroactive action.

In Santayana words ‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat’and how what we learn will have a direct effect on the formation of our future perceptions of the world. The project deals an open-ended inquiry into history and the prospect of imagining fresh possibilities, suggesting that we are at crossroads in our society where we need to demystify history to justly retrospect.
