'Smriti' was inspired by the notion of â€˜memory'. It is through memory that socio-cultural mores were passed on and gave rise to aesthetic predilections that moulded the development of art in India. Furthermore, artists often excavate images from oneâ€™s memory, reimagining and registering what they had seen earlier. Smriti drew from these strands of thought and chronologically explored the different visual languages that evolved in India from the 16-17th century down to the present. The exhibition featured the works of M.F. Husain, S.H. Raza, Jamini Roy, Nandalal Bose, Ganesh Pyne, V.S. Gaitonde and others.
