OF TAILS & TALES 


Through time, human beings have explored their relationships with the animal world, often through associating aspects of aesthetics, religion, desires, utility, myth-making and so on, making these creatures invaluable in the schema of our own existence. Whether perceived as positive or negative, often encompassing attributes of both kinds, their embodiment in art has always illustrated their roles and perceived symbolic significance within the human world.

Of Tails & Tales provide students with a glimpse of varied representations of the animal kingdom, as captured in visual culture through centuries and across diverse media, using artworks culled from the MAP Collection.

JOURNEYS THROUGH ART


Where is the meaning of an artwork situated? Is it in the work, in the objective of the artist-creator or in the mind of its audience? Is it shaped by history, or by political situations and cultural conditions of the time it is produced in, or the time it is viewed in? How do we understand art, what do we learn from it and why do we need it? These are some of the questions raised by the Journeys Through Art workshops.

Split over three modules or exhibition-cum-workshops, the programme provides students with a broad understanding and appreciation of Indian visual art across mediums and spanning different time periods. Each exhibition and workshop presents a different theme, attempting to bring to the forefront the varied contexts within which art is viewed. Providing participants with a glimpse into many interlinked histories, the workshops—using artworks from the MAP Collection—highlight the relevance of art in our social, cultural, political and personal lives.
