Source Oh My Luxe ! par Diana Leszczynski
Si vous êtes passionné(e) d’Inde ou tout simplement fan d’Art Contemporain, rendez vous vite à la boutique Guerlain du 68 Champs-Elysées (à Paris) jusqu’au 14 Novembre prochain. En effet associé au parcours privé de la FIAC, la maison Guerlain vous offre un rendez-vous haut en couleurs sur le thème de l’Inde si cher à son histoire. Et oui ! Tout a commencé en 1921, lorsqu’un Maharadjah, de passage à Paris, raconta à Jacques et Raymond Guerlain la célèbre histoire des jardins de Shalimar, qui ont abrité au XVIIème siècle les amours du Shah et de son épouse adorée, la persane Mumtaz Mahal. Une histoire qui a donné naissance au célèbre parfum Shalimar…

«C'est vraiment exceptionnel. Le terme est galvaudé, mais cette fois, on est devant des chefs-d'oeuvre qui sont comme des portes d'entrée sur une culture fascinante. On ne connaît tellement rien à l'Inde, et pourtant, c'est le deuxième pays au monde en termes de population, c'est une civilisation plurimillénaire, avec des religions extraordinaires», a exprimé Anne Eschapasse, directrice des expositions et de la médiation au Musée.

Why see Art ?

Source Livemint by Sanjukta Sharma
The abiding reason is that a lot of the art on display in our galleries tell us something about the world we live in. Talking of diversity, don’t miss the paintings of N. Parsharamulu currently on display at Mumbai’s Gallery Maskara. He is an artist in his early 30s, and has been painting with small means on the outskirts of Hyderabad for more than 10 years. It is his first solo show and the gallery’s first show of paintings after four years. He is remarkably provocative, and you will meet him in our Culture pages soon.

L'exposition est cependant déconseillée – pas interdite, attention – aux mineurs. Si l'esthétique du livre offre un regard sur la vie culturelle indienne, et plus encore, sur l'hindouisme, elle présente cependant des visuels pour le moins explicites. On pourra y retrouver, cependant, des explications claires sur le regard que le monde occidental pose sur ce livre.

Art From a Sojourn or Two to India

Source The New York Times by Kareen Rosenberg
“Francesco Clemente: Inspired by India,” at the Rubin Museum of Art, ties the peripatetic Italian-born painter to a single country. The exhibition is also something of a comeback, the first Clemente retrospective in New York in more than a decade, although at just 20 works or so, it’s not exactly comprehensive. It is, however, thoroughly immersive. The installation, in the Rubin’s skylit top-floor galleries, evokes the structure of an Indian temple with a combination of large and small spaces; it has an open central area of paintings, intimate nooks for sculpture and a “sanctum” of watercolors.

A Closer Look At The Contemporary Art From India At SAM

Source Seattle Refined by Melanie Biehle
The exhibition is divided into three sections of focus - work that explores the ideas that influence contemporary Indian society (including Hindu mythology, Bollywood movies, and Indian and western art), how people interact in and with public places in cities, and a more contemplative look at family and self. “Photography is a potent choice for contemporary Indian artists, perhaps because the country has been somewhat photographically over-exposed by western visitors,” says Catharina Manchanda, SAM’s Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art. “City Dwellers conveys the complexities and also the excitement of everyday life in India today.”

Swiss show plucks Indian tribe from obscurity

Source Swiss Info by Keerthana Nagarajan
Intricately carved in the shapes of humans, birds and animals, a collection of stringed musical instruments from India is attracting people to Museum Rietberg in Zurich. The Sculpted Sound exhibition features more than 90 stringed lutes – most of them made by the Santhal people, one of India’s oldest and largest tribes. An estimated six to ten million Santhals live in the rural areas in the states of Jharkhand, West Bengal, Bihar, Odisha and Assam, as well as in neighbouring Nepal and Bangladesh. It was the Sarinda – one of the oldest sculpted musical instruments carved by the Santhals –that first caught the interest of collector Bengt Fosshag. A successful illustrator and graphic designer from Germany, Fosshag is known for collecting some of the world’s most important lutes.

Seattle: City Dwellers The Schizophrenic Harmony of India

Source L'Oeil de la Photographie by Sybile Girault
What City Dwellers shows us it that Indian culture likes contrast, the alliance of opposites: the past and the present, the local and the global, the East and the West. It plays with space and time in a “harmonious schizophrenia,” as the writer Pavan Sharma has said. This exhibition is also the opportunity to present a part of the collection of Sanjay Parthasarathy, a former Microsoft executive who founded the tech company Indix, based in Seattle and Chennai. He is an Indian collector at an intersection of cultures.

Fifty Stages of Man: Rameshwar Broota’s palette has held many a delightful encounters

Source The Indian Express by Vandana Kaira
When he started his artistic career though, he was to completely refrain from the genre, trotting the path of depicting human condition instead. Traversing through the city, from his home in Rajouri to Triveni Kala Sangam, he was plagued with what he saw; the labourers on the Capital’s streets appeared on his canvases as stark figures of emaciated men, their ribs protruding, and sharing tables with flesh-eating gluttons. At KNMA, Broota recalls that period vividly. “There was a lot of gloom, poverty that I saw,” he says. People walking into the museum have before them distinct phases of Broota, in a retrospective of five decades, which has works sourced from world over. The Head of the Art Department at Triveni Kala Sangam confesses of being far from prolific. “There aren’t more than six-seven paintings each year, and when I’m practising photography that too becomes difficult,” he says.

Gallery Espace celebrates its 25th anniversary with a mega-show on DRAWINGS: Nov 10-28

Source Ground Report by Sumedha Dhasmana
Incidentally, Gallery Espace was started in 1989 by Renu Modi at the suggestion of the Husain himself and was one of the first art galleries in India to introduce variable lighting and sound systems, in recognition of the crucial factor that is the environment within which a work of art is displayed. In a similar vein, Gallery Espace was a pioneer when it came to video installations, going so far as to organize a first-of-its-kind monthly out-reach programme (Video Wednesday I, 2008-09 and Video Wednesday II, 2011-12) in order to bring artists working in new media into the spotlight. Drawing 2014 will showcase more than 100 artists from India and features works dating from 1947 to the present in which drawing is presented as a broad and inclusive practice.

Indian Modernist, Artist of Mystery

Source New York Times by Arthur Lubow
When Sandhini Poddar first saw the paintings of V. S. Gaitonde, their silence spoke loudly. Displayed in a group show in 1997 at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Mumbai, the large abstract canvases, with layered colors and textures, invited long contemplation. “This was a feeling that wasn’t ephemeral, it stayed with me, and I could recall it whenever I wanted to go to a place of silence,” she said. Gaitonde, in his early 70s at the time, was living in a one-room rented apartment in New Delhi. Although fellow artists and knowledgeable collectors admired his work, he remained in the shadows, as he preferred. He had friends but never married. He gave few interviews. “He was a special kind of fellow,” said the New Delhi painter Krishen Khanna, a friend. “He didn’t doubt himself. He didn’t go around beating his drum. He was very quiet.” By the time Ms. Poddar, 38, adjunct curator at the Guggenheim Museum, was in a position to help raise awareness of Gaitonde’s achievement, the painter, whom she never met, was no longer available to assist her. He died in 2001.

Why India's art scene is increasingly being defined by foreign collectors and museums

Source Scroll In by Girish Shahane
The net result is that a number of galleries now focus on foreign collectors rather than Indians. The best example of this trend is Calcutta’s Experimenter, run by Priyanka and Prateek Raja, which has turned the misfortune of being located in a visual arts backwater to its advantage, building a international roster of artists, and a reputation far greater than its small permanent space would have permitted in the pre-art fair era. Both the market for modern masters and the one for young contemporaries, then, are increasingly defined by foreign judgments: the stamp of esteemed institutions such as the Guggenheim and Tate Modern in the first case, and the pocketbooks of adventurous collectors in the other.

V.S. Gaitonde Exhibit Opens at Guggenheim Museum, Illuminating India’s Little-Known Legend

Source The Wall Street Journal by Jessica Dawnson
One of India’s most radical and reclusive contemporary artists until his death in 2001, V.S. Gaitonde was little studied in his lifetime, even in his own country. “He’s legendary, in part, because people don’t know very much about him,” said Sandhini Poddar, the curator of a major exhibit devoted to the painter, opening Friday at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. “Everybody knows his name in India, but no one was able to pin it down in any sophisticated way.” The Guggenheim show marks the first time so many Gaitonde works—45 paintings and works on paper created between 1953 and 1997—will be seen together.

Modernists lead yet again at Sotheby's South Asian art auction; Tyeb Mehta tops with £1.1 million

Source Blouin Art Info by Archana Khare-Ghose
Tyeb Mehta, the modern Indian artist credited with triggering the art boom in the country with a record auction price achieved in 2002, has topped the charts yet again. At the Modern and Contemporary South Asian Art auction held by the Sotheby's in London on October 7, Mehta's 'Blue Painting' went for £1,118,500 (Rs 11.04 crore approximately), fetching far more than its highest pre-auction estimate of £800,000. 'Blue Painting', a 1982 oil on canvas came to the auction table from the contemporary Indian art collection of the Glenbarra Art Museum in Jihoji Himeji, Japan. Masanori Fukuoka, founder and director of the Japanese museum, has shared in the catalogue notes that the Blue Painting had transfixed him so much when he had stood in the living room of its then owner Bal Chhabra that it had become the first ever painting of the artist that he bought. Tyeb Mehta (1925-2009) created very few monochromatic paintings in his career that was marked by innumerable superlative works.

Prajakta Potnis (born 1980 in Thane, India, lives and works in Mumbai) holds a grant by KfW Stiftung for the International Studio Programme at Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin and will be finishing her residency by showcasing her current project the kitchen debate. Her work explores the interplay between the invisible and the visible, the private and the public, the internal and the external. In her art, walls, partitions and even the skin as the outer limit of the human body appear both as material objects and metaphorical concepts. Her installations, sculptures, drawings, paintings, photos and videos are distorted representations of everyday items, inventing new contexts and creating bizarre new worlds.

Tribal India on the world map

How the textiles and techniques of our native people are entering mainstream fashion and global ramps. Tribal India was never cooler. While a small bunch of revivalist desi designers are modernising rural textiles from the subcontinent, international labels and celebrities can't get enough of our heritage weaves and patterns. Whether through Ikat printed pants on Hollywood actress Jessica Alba, Rajasthani bangles adorning the arms of models at Paris Fashion Week, a Warli print mini dress at fashion week in Mumbai, the intricate embroidery on a red carpet dress worn by British popstar Jessie J, a slice of tribal India is peeking through every corner of the world.

Following a museum in the Space Group building inaugurated last month, three new museums plan to open in Top-dong and Dongmun-dong in Jeju Island by Kim Chang-il, an art collector and founder of Arario Galleries. An old cinema, a bike shop and a motel are expected to be transformed into contemporary museums in the island, named after traditional names of the buildings called “Top-dong Cinema,” “Top-dong Bike Shop” and “Dongmun Motel.” The 3,048-square-meter cinema building in Top-dong used to be a cultural hotspot among young people but financial problems have forced it to be closed in 2005. Mr. Kim purchased the building to open a contemporary museum with his collections. “What does the vessel contain, that the river does not,” a work by Indian artist Subodh Gupta, is exhibited in the museum.
