Join us for a screening of select films from the series, ARTiculate by Sumantra Ghosal

What goes into understanding an artwork? What are the ways in which art influences us? How does art spark curiosity or reflect the world around it? ARTiculate is a series of short films that takes a close look at select artworks and artists in MAP’s collections. Visual analysis and historical contexts seamlessly merge together in these films that seek to engage the viewer into looking deeper into the sometimes strange and often spectacular ways in which art works.

Sumantra Ghosal

Sumantra Ghosal spent the better part of his life making advertising films for his companies Cinematix and Equinox. Now, he makes documentaries. Noteworthy among his several films on the arts are the two feature-length films: ‘The Speaking Hand’ (on the tabla maestro Zakir Hussain) and ‘The Unseen Sequence’ (on the Bharatanatyam dancer Malavika Sarukkai). In 2017, Sumantra completed ‘The Space Between The Notes’, a documentary on a concert by Zakir Hussain and Niladri Kumar. He also served as creative collaborator with Malavika Sarukkai and wrote the poems for the full-length dance project ‘Thari – The Loom’. His most recent work is ‘Kaifinama’, a full-length documentary film to commemorate the birth centenary of the Urdu poet Kaifi Azmi.
