In the last couple of years, a number of craft projects have emerged.
In November, the government announced the construction of a new “Civic Centre for Arts and Crafts” to be dedicated to the country’s arts.
On Monday, a local artist and an artist collective opened a gallery in the same area to showcase their work.
A month later, a new exhibition titled “The Art of the Modern Arts” was opened in the space.
The theme of the exhibition is “The Modern Art of India.”
It includes the work of such artists as Terence O’Brien, Bala Bandyopadhyay, Arvind Palan, Mihir Singh, Shubham Kapoor, Satish Chandra, Rishi Kapoor and others.
In the exhibition, a variety of crafts are showcased, ranging from traditional handiwork and embroidery to modern works.
Some of these include jewellery, leather goods, ceramics, glass, leather jewelry, jewelry and jewellery products.
In a bid to address the issue of the “costly” imports of traditional and contemporary art, the Prime Minister had in December, 2016, ordered a ban on imports of Indian artworks from abroad.
The move was hailed by the artists as a “historic victory”.
“We have the support of the government, which has been supporting us.
This is a historic victory for us.
But the challenge remains.
We will continue to fight for our rights, for the rights of all artisans,” said Gautam Kulkarni, one of the curators of the gallery.
“There are many who don’t know the art of India, and so, they make art which is made of money and the government wants to ban it,” he added.
Ahead of the inauguration of the new museum in the old site, the Arts Ministry announced that it was also setting up a cultural exchange scheme in collaboration with the Arts Council of India.
It said the scheme will help to promote Indian art.
According to sources, the exhibition will feature works by the likes of Terence Oman, Shabnam Khan, Gautama Buddha, Rajiv Kumar, Nandan Nilekani and Arjun Gupta.
The new exhibition is scheduled to open in the next couple of weeks.
