Event Description : 
Kiran Nadar Museum of Art presents ‘Over the edge, crossing the line five artists from Bengal’ In-depth oeuvres and artistic inclinations & ‘Common Course’ Illustration of poetic, satirical and political commentaries

‘Over the edge, crossing the line five artists from Bengal’ ( 13th August 2019 – 25th September 2019) is an in-depth oeuvres and artistic inclinations of five modern masters from different parts of Bengal: Ganesh Pyne (1937 -2013), Meera Mukherjee (1928 – 1998), Somnath Hore (1921 -2006), Ganesh Haloi (b.1936) and Jogen Chowdhury (b. 1939) which ) which spans more than five decades from 1960s to early 2000s, showcasing more than two hundred artworks from the KNMA collection, as well as loans from artists and private collections. Their visual vocabularies reached maturity during 1970s and 1980s, with the city of Calcutta emerging as an intersection point. The social and political changes, witnessing and observing major occurrences like the Bengal famine, the Tebhaga movement, the Bangladesh Language Movement, the Vietnam War, and avant-garde mobilization in the creative disciplines of literature, cinema and theatre, has shaped their individual artistic styles and preoccupations. The exhibition explores how the transfigured, charged and complex imagery challenges rigid perceptions of viewing.

‘Common Course’ ( 13th August 2019 – 25th October 2019) showcasing poetic, satirical and political commentaries of Gaganendranath Tagore, Chittaprosad, KG Subramanyan and RK Laxman. Medley of art, paintings and cartoons to enthral audiences.
