Nature to Culture: Crafts of India
Curated by
Vaishnavi Ramanathan and Brijeshwari Kumari Gohil
'Nature to Culture: Crafts of India' highlighted the connection between Indian craft forms and the environment from which they emerge. The exhibition looked at the state of seven crafts from different ecological regions of the country (mountainous / coastal / pastoral/ riverine/ desert) and presented their case of survival, transformation or disappearance through the changes in the ecology. Furthermore, the exhibition highlighted the aspect of economy in Indian craft, evident in the way materials are used (and re-used). ​The crafts featured in the exhibition were Rogan painting, Cherial scrolls, Coir making, Manjusha, Sitalpati, Ply-Split Braiding and Namda.
