An Exhibition on Bapu

Bapu: The Crafts person’s Vision was borne of a desire to determine whether Bapu continues to resonate with the craftsperson and her/his craft and if she/he does, how. Every enquiry sets the seeker on a journey as did this initiative.
The objective of this exhibition was to seek and to learn how our craftspeople understood Mahatma Gandhi, his life and message, these many decades after his passing away. Their brief , then , was to depict him through the medium of their respective crafts.
The results of these interactions were more than satisfying: the works in this collection are vivid and narratives in themselves of the ideals Mahatma Gandhi embodied .
