Event Description : The Indira Gandhi Centre for the Arts (IGNCA), was established in the memory of Late Smt. Indira Gandhi and is visualized as a centre encompassing the study and experience of all the arts, each form with its own integrity yet within a dimension of mutual interdependence, interrelated with nature, social structure and cosmology.
The Janapada Sampada division of the IGNCA undertakes research of the Indian cultural phenomenon in its totality and builds core collection of material and documentation on folk and tribal arts through multidisciplinary approach. One of the major programs of the division is Ethnographic Collection under which creativity at different levels is explored, researched and documented. This collection involves ritual objects, masks, puppets, musical instruments and textiles collected from various regions of the country, out of which among these fifty two rare pieces of Phulkari collection were also acquired.
Phulkari is very refined embroidery work of Punjab and Haryana . India has a great tradition of embroi-dery in different parts, and Phulkari stands out among these. It has more emotional, social and cultural value which is very rare. Embroidered with silk thread on cotton base, Phulkari is a shawl made by the mother for her young daughter or daughter-in-law. Phulkari literally means floral work and is also called ‘Bagh’, which literally means a ‘garden’.
In the olden times, accomplishment of a bride and her mother was judged by the beautiful Phulkari and bagh they made. Even the affluence of the families was judged by the number and work of Phulkari and bagh they gave to their daughters as their trousseau. They also made ceremonial pieces which were used in marriages, at the time of birth of a child and during festive occasions. Phulkaris are known for their vibrant colors, geometric pattern and gaiety which are an integral part of the life and tradition of the people of Punjab.
The IGNCA has completed twenty five years and is celebrating its silver jubilee by holding seminars, conferences, and exhibitions on various dimensions of Indian Arts and culture.
Keeping with this spirit, the centre is holding this exhibition.
