Current Exhibition
The idea of modernism in India has never radically negated its history, rather firmly rooted itself in its past while looking forward to a progressive future. The nationalist movement in Indian art precisely revisited its glorious and sumptuous past of different painting styles including the influential miniature traditions of painting. The schools of Mughal, Rajasthani, Pahari and Deccani miniatures have continued to amuse and inspire the artists of the generations that followed. And in the present art scenario, a great number of artists have developed their art practice by taking considerable inspiration from the element, style and theme of miniatures. Their works talk about the social, political, economic, environmental and other concerns of the contemporary time even though they are executed in a manner that has its origin in the distant past.

This online exhibition, ‘New Stories in Old Frames’, aims to bring together five practicing artists of our time whose respective practices are inspired by the miniature style of painting in more than one way.
