Among India’s many indigenous art traditions, the Pardhans of Gond and the wall works of the Warli (Central India), ritualistic and religious pieces by women in Mithila region (Bihar), and the Bengal scroll painters are among the best known. In this remarkable exhibition, works both archival and contemporary have been curated from private collections around the world, revealing the tremendous breadth of cultural traditions in India, and their relevance from domestic to global concerns. Our own Ragamala Dance Company opens the exhibition party with Sacred Earth, a gorgeous work of poetic movement exploring human emotion and the natural world.
