As part of Revelation & Reverences - Glimpses of India’s Art Legacy 1850-1950, gallery g organised a curated walk for the public on December 29. With a steady stream of visitors to the gallery since it opened on December 9, we felt there was a need to take the audience through a guided tour.
Opening up to our audiences through Facebook and Instagram, we were overwhelmed by the response as registrations came pouring in. Keeping the entries to under 50, the visitors were taken through the nuances of the exhibition by Archana Shenoy, Director, Curatorial Practices. Explaining the theme and significance of the exhibition in its 100-year history (1850-1950), the participants left after an enriching and enlightening experience.
Considering that we had to keep the registrations to a certain number, and given the interest surrounding the event, a second curated walk was organised on January 7. Once again, the response was very heartwarming as several visitors trooped in well before the appointed hour. At the end of the walk through, the common feeling amongst everyone was the revelations of the fascinating aspects of India’s Art Legacy.
