Event Description: 
Treasure Art Gallery is organising an exhibition titled 'Art of Bengal Today' tracing the trajectory of 
Bengal Art from its complex historical context to its present-day manifestations through the works of its 15 major living legends and senior artists including Jogen Chowdhury, Ganesh Haloi, Sanat Kar, Ashok Bhowmik, Goutam Chowdhury and Samindra Majumdar among others. The exhibition, curated by Tina Chandroji, would look at the changing socio-political realities and their collective as well as individual responses to the same as artists. An exhibition featuring such a wide range of senior artists from Bengal is being held in New Delhi after a long hiatus.

While some of the artworks reflect the struggles and brokenness the artists experienced in post-partition Bengal, some of them portray the alienation of a fragmented life brought about by the death and decay resulting from the Naxalbari uprising. Yet others shine with a glimmer of hope. In the words of art critic and writer Siddharth Sivakumar, "brokenness and fragmented reality of the prolonged collective past, of the state and the individual, with all the shrapnels of terror and torment, also find ironic beauty like the bits and pieces of glass within a kaleidoscope, making an image and an experience that is more than the sum of its parts." The accompanying exhibition catalogue features introductory and other texts written by Mr. Sivakumar.
