Craft is a form of expression that connects an individual to another through shared tradition, social, cultural and material needs.
Through its new exhibit, ‘Nature to Culture: Crafts of India,’ the Piramal Museum of Art aims to showcase the story of Indian craft traditions and their marriage to land and the environment.
The exhibition which will be on display from 27th May till 27th August, hopes to shed light on the marriage between nature and culture through five-fold classification of land as a framework on how the different craft traditions of India have evolved.
Curators for the exhibit are Vaishnavi Ramanathan and Brijeshwari Kumari Gohil. Vaishnavi is award-winning artist, writer and researcher. Brijeshwari is an archeology & art history expert and ex-Exhibition Director of previous Piramal Museum of Art exhibit, Kaleidoscope.
