Cocteau and Company by Jean Paul Fargier

In collaboration with Alliance Française de Bombay

Cocteau draws in front of the camera. We see a sure, definitive line develop – like a jazz musician or like writing in action. This unfolding line is the central figure of the film which presents a highly original erudite portrait of the artist, showing the constant interactions at work and the essence of a politic, eclectic research.

The ‘Bombay School’ painters and the photographic pentimenti

The lecture will throw light on the working methods of academic painters working in western India in the early twentieth century. It will draw upon autobiographies, early art histories and criticism that appeared in Marathi periodicals of the time, to examine the interface between painting, photography and “ life-study” as a studio practice.

Kalo Bari or Black House: A unique unbaked-clay structure as a hostel for visual art students in Santiniketan

The talk intends to meditate upon the unique architectural experiment, analytically appreciating the program of creating sculptural reliefs in the context of overall pedagogic foundations of Kala-Bhavana, in an attempt to relate the harmony between sculptural and architectural innovations to the period of the rhythm of the early modern in Indian visual art.
