Event Description : EXHIBITION ​​"Sarita Handa 25 years & Beyond” A 2 day show of historical textiles and contemporary art by Sarita Handa.

Working towards design innovation and inspired by Indian heritage and craft, Sarita Handa for the past 25 years has taken Indian aesthetics to a global platform representing traditional skills with contemporary accents. In more than 2 decades the company has been responsible in bringing back to life the old school art of Indian needlework translated into beautiful craft intensive collections with global inspirations. Established in 1992 the company commemorates the 25 years in design and to mark this celebration a 2 day exhibition of art and textile is being organised at the legendary.

The exhibition will showcase the company’s collection of rare and vintage textiles handpicked over the years from across the globe and contemporary creative projects by 4 visionary artists Satish Gupta, Gunjan Arora and Rahul Jain, Arrti Mansinghka and Jeevan Xavier interpreted in various mediums like video, weaving and canvas in their own individual style using signature Sarita Handa textiles. The event reflects an interest in providing a unique platform for artistic expression in textiles and the development of an on-going programme to support emerging talent in the field. It represents a new series of initiatives that celebrate collaborations between art and textiles to bring forth ‘the art of textiles’.

Satish Gupta, a renowned Indian artist and sculptor, draws upon his constant engagement with the art of zen and mysticism to create dynamic installations which are inspired by Buddhism. The designer duo of Gunjan Arora and Rahul Jain will transform a method of using yarn in textile art unique to them with the use of mudras or hand-gestures associated with Indian spirituality. Mumbai-based artist Arrti Mansinghka will evoke facets of the holy river Ganga recreating its journey through sacred geographies using intricate textile patchwork and Bangalore-based designer Jeevan Xavier will shed light upon the essential skills of the hand which go into making every Sarita Handa product, through a film-based series of projections. 

The collaborations for this event take the sustainability drive forward by cherishing and re-purposing fabrics from the company’s archives giving them a new life. The artists themselves share a special relationship with Sarita Handa which has evolved over the years, making this occasion into a celebration of the creative conversations they have developed with the organisation.

A kaleidoscope of renewal, rebirth, reinvention and regeneration of design, textile and art, the event celebrates the past and toasts new beginnings. Spearheaded by the creative team at Sarita Handa, Delhi-based textile designer and curator Mayank Mansingh Kaul and designed by Amit Chhabra the event promises to be a visual and spiritual treat rooted in and inspired by the vast heritage of traditional Indian textiles.

“For over two decades now, Sarita Handa has been at the vanguard of taking the best of Indian craftsmanship to the world. As a company with a focus on textiles, we remain rooted in and inspired by the vast heritage of traditional Indian textiles and this event draws from the company’s journey of exploring a universe of textiles and amalgamating it with art”, says Mrs ​Sarita ​Handa, Founder​ and Creative Head​ at Sarita Handa​.​
