Event Description : Priyanka Banerjee, presents "Panorama" a group exhibition to identify  new talent and bringing great art to a wider audience.

The colours, shapes and emotions have emerged from the very soul of the Capital city, and together they will converge at AIFACS this summer. As a part of a group exhibition titled “Panorama”, over 30 city-based artists will bring to the viewers a varying range of interpretations of raging contemporary issues.

Curated by Priyanka Banerjee, “Panorama”, literally meaning an unbroken view of a subject, celebrates the talents of the fresh and the new, and makes a compelling case for contemporary art in the city. Some of the participating artists include Mridul Chakraborty, Kashi Nath Bose, Ganesh Panda, Biplab Biswas, Nilay Sarkar, Preeti Gautam, Shikha Bisht, Naseem Khan, Prince Chand,  Shamsun nisa, Rajeev Semwal,  Sheikh Abdullah,  Rashid Khan ,Darshan Sharma   Meghna Agarwal, Rohini Jain,Hamlet shougrakpam , Shalini Varshney, Amit Kumar,  Sadaf Khan, Neeraj Mitra, Ankita Ahlawat, Hariom, and Shipra Gupta, among others.

The exhibition delves into contemporary issues of social relevance, such as feminism, ethical treatment of animals, spiritual harmony and so on. Nature, for instance, is explored through mutually symbiotic relationship between the flora and fauna. Urbanization and industrialization have exploited the natural layer of our ecosystem, and its awareness becomes paramount to awaken our collective consciousness. As each artist touches upon subjects such as these that have paralysed the society, their canvas becomes a window for us all to explore the possibilities. This one-of-its-kind event is funded by the artists entirely on their own.

Says curator Priyanka Banerjee, “Just the way a PANORAMA represents an entire worldview, this exhibition is a wholesome view of the thoughts of its many diverse yet like-minded artists. These artworks emote through vivid strokes – some are muted and some vibrant; together they create a surreal experience.”

Dabbling in a diverse range of mediums, from watercolour, oils and pen and pencils to mixed media and sculpture, the artists bring to their canvas emotions that reverberate with social significance. Mridul Chakraborty depicts speed in the lives of human beings, while Rohini Jain’s paintings portray pigeons both symbolically and in abstract forms. Meghna Agarwal uses a variety of mediums to express ideas like power and permanence, while Nilay Sircar takes inputs from his surroundings, finding familiar elements across time and culture to create a new visual vocabulary and express the nuances of culture, folklore and history. Preeti Gautam chooses feminism as her subject to raise awareness about crime against women.

 Moreover, though from the same city, the artists’ personal training reflects national diversity. From Shantiniketan comes Hamlet Shougrakpam, while the prestigious Delhi College of Art finds its protégées in Meghna Agarwal, Md. Naseem Khan, Shipra Gupta and Rashid Khan. Calcutta Art College is represented by Nilay Sarkar. At the same time, self-taught artists such as Rohini Jain and Rajeev Semwal bring to the viewers a distinct set of skills that have set them on par with the professionals.

About the Curator: Priyanka Banerjee is known for her efforts to promote emerging artists, and in the same spirit, she presents yet another exhibition that highlights exciting talent from the city. She has curated many group exhibitions in the Capital in the past, including the esteemed galleries at Siri Fort Auditorium, Travancore Palace, Lalit Kala Akademi, AIFACS and India Habitat Centre.
