The art exhibition organized as a part of the students’ project for their paper “History of Curatorial Practices.” It is a first-of-its-kind initiative on campus.

The art collection is curated by Nisha Aggarwal, Pradeep K. Arya, Satish Malviya and Romana Farid. Among other reasons, the exhibition is to give a platform to budding artists to exhibit their talents.

The show, which was inaugurated by Shobha Bharoota, showcases exhibits by artists Anjani Kashyap, Mala Srivastav, Raj Kumar Sahani, Rajnish Chhanesh, Udipti Jaiswal, Vaibhav Sharma, Varnita Mahajan and Mohammad Wasim.

The theme of the curated work is “Transformation” a metamorphic process which gets defined in various aspects of human life from birth till death.

“Curating the exhibition is not a sudden idea or plan, but it is the fruit of our last five months hard work and patience,” says the Curatorial Note at the exhibition.

The exhibition is open for visitors from Feb. 21 to 26, 2011, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the M.F. Hussain Art Gallery.
