Le Caravage, Pierro Della Francesca & Miniature Persane

In collaboration with Alliance Française de Bombay

The work that distinguishes the Baroque period is stylistically complex, even contradictory. In general, the desire to evoke emotional states by appealing to the senses, often in dramatic ways, underlies its manifestations. Immerse yourself in Baroque art with these films by Alain Jaubert.

On curatorial intent: the Documenta and the Venice

Biennale, 2017

Lecture by Shukla Sawant

The talk focuses on the two major art manifestations of 2017 the Documenta in Kassel, Germany and the Venice Biennale. While critical reception of the curatorial strategies of both has been mixed, what has not been discussed at length is the artwork on view and the circumstances under which some significant mid-century artists came to be given a prominent position within the exhibition narratives.

Shukla Sawant is a visual artist and currently Professor of Visual Studies at the School of Arts and Aesthetics, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.

The Politics of Global Art Platforms: A Take from the Global South

Lecture by Parul Dave-Mukherji

How to see the current Venice Biennale through the prism of 'global south' to explore its curatorial strategies? The talk will touch upon some current trends of contemporary art in the light of current Documenta 14 and Venice Biennale 2017.

Rather than simply focusing on India's missing pavilion part II in Venice the idea is to see this Biennale 2017 in relation to the previous one curated by Okwui Enwezor. What happens to the political? Is there a return to the artist? Is there a shift from Das Capital to Art? The talk will touch upon some current trends of contemporary art in the light of current Documenta 14 and Venice Biennale 2017 as well as biennales in Istanbul, Havana etc.

Dr. Parul Dave-Mukherji is professor at the School of Arts and Aesthetics, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India.
