Event Description: Maati: Adaptation of Indian Folk Art

Art Has Always Been a Way for People to Explore Their Own Identity and Culture, and That of Others

Curated by Shalini Chaudhary & Bhamini Shree

Maati, or the soil (Indian here), is a nostalgic surreal dance of the folk tales of India, the beliefs, the faith, the culture, the importance of flora and fauna, and the respect that we inherently carry for our Mother Earth. It demands attention, to the details and how the smallest of ancient narratives have found their way through art in India. 

The exhibition is curated to show the richness of folk-art, the evolution of folk in the current times, and a taste of responsibility of us Indians to preserve, showcase, and promote the richness of our culture, and what belongs to us. This is an attempt to take pride in our roots, and open a window of opportunity for those who have been trying to take the responsibility of carrying forward the Indian legacy of folk-art, and promote them in the journey thereafter.

Bhamini Shree is a visual artist, writer, and mentor with over 14 years of experience in using art to create and generate social impact. Her creative field is diverse and includes expressionism, folk art, and mandala art, among other art forms. She has popularised folk art and used art as therapy by conducting workshops at the school level and with corporate employees. She believes that art is a manifestation of our subconscious, an expression of our aspirations and that it cannot be contained under a ceiling.
