East/East-East seeks to initiate an experimental East-arts narrative. The programme is predicated on a belief that this narrative requires a new approach, one which is neither delineated by Western institutions nor remains the sole, privileged domain of Western-focussed curators.
East/East-East champions a less stressful, more organic domain. This is the playful space carved out by shared geopolitical psychologies, the place where these idiosyncrasies are mapped, celebrated and nurtured. Uninterested in formulating responses to values emanating from galactic museums or art brokers, East/East-East will instead thrive off self-reflexive regional dialogues, using such insularity and rapprochement to find alternative approaches to art from the GGC, Levant, Pakistan, India, Singapore, South Korea and Japan.
In collaboration with a number of cultural organisations, arts enthusiasts and curators, East/East-East will investigate these new narratives with a series of exhibitions and initiatives in DUCTAC’s Gallery of Light throughout 2015–2016.
Art Mudra: Window to the '' UNIVERSAL ART ''
Exhibition | Feb 6 – 12, 2016 | The Gallery of Light, DUCTAC
Opening Night: Saturday, Feb 6, 2016, 7 PM
The brainchild of artist and curator Daxa Khandwala, Art Mudra bridges local art to global galleries. This international platform pools in artists from all over India to present artworks at event abroad.
Art Mudra recognises the value of art from India and creates a platform for those eminent and emerging artists to gain value for their craft in India and abroad. This forms the gateway to bring together artists, galleries, art investors and connoisseurs from different countries and ultimately make art universally available.
While the prime focus of the brand is to grant art and its artists their true value for the skill; it also creates art awareness – particularly how Indian art is appreciated world over.
Art Mudra is committed to create value, through engagement between the works of art and patrons. Our prime focus is to promote traditional as well as ''out of the box'' work with various colors and creativity with forms.
It thus offers a platter of various forms of art.
We have selected artists from all over India, who have unique vision and strong command of their art where they experiment and make them visually outstanding.
