Event Photography At The Jehangir Art Gallery, Fort, Mumbai
Adikriti Madhya Pradesh Tribal Painting Exhibition
We recently had the opportunity to do Professional Event Photography at One of the Most Prestigious Art Galleries in India – The Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai.
Madhya Pradesh is a state with an abundant tribal population, a fact that gives it an organic link to the past. This reality has given the Madhya Pradesh Handicrafts & Handloom Development Corporation, a State Owned enterprise, the great responsibility to strike a fine balance between the call of modern progress and preservation of the cultural identity of the tribes.
The exhibition was an outcome of a series of efforts to preserve this Tribal Identity. A total of 16 artists from Dindori & Jhabua Districts of Madhya Pradesh participated and presented their work in two distinct painting style: “Gond and Pithora”
The Madhya Pradesh Handicrafts & Handloom Development Corporation for the first time introduced the beauty of these Tribal paintings onto a varied line of products. The objective was to ensure the conservation of this traditional art form and provide sustainable employment opportunity to the Tribal Artists of Madhya Pradesh.
Its good to know & see that the artists of Madhya Pradesh are now taking their traditional painting to the modern idioms of canvas. This initiative will enlighten the connoisseurs of art about a simple yet distinct style.
A great deal of credit goes to Mr.Ramakant Chaturvedi for organising & managing this event. It was a well planned event & Mr.Chaturvedi was instrumental in making it a success. Due credit must also go to Miss Anubhuti Beohar for helping the tribal community promote & sell their work of art.…
