KG Subramanyan: Bahurupee in the Panorama

Bahurupee in the Panorama, builds on works in the collection of the Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) and documentation from K.G. Subramanyan’s digitised personal archive with Asia Art Archive in India (AAAI).

With K.G. Subramanyan’s writings as a starting point and guiding matrix, this exhibition forms poetic frameworks around his tools: intuition, curiosity and material knowledge. The exhibition explores two key ideas: the panorama from an introductory talk titled ‘Art and Craft Panorama in India’, and the figure of the bahurupee, from a catalogue text in 1994. Following his playful imaginary excursions and discovering “a magic in making” in the panorama, the exhibition takes the viewer through independent, yet converging meanderings through artworks, writings and keywords.
