I LOVE INDIAN ART
6 April 2013 at Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi.
Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art (FICA) and Flow India conducted 'I Love Contemporary Art', a workshop that let children discover and explore the most cutting-edge artworks in India today with Ideas of the Sublime, a special exhibition at the Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi, which was organized by Vadehra Art Gallery, New Delhi.
With never-seen-before works by 17 of India's most influential contemporary artists, this special workshop focused on how art inspires feelings of awe and wonder in us. Through child-centred discussion and exploration, the children and their guides worked out how different artworks make them feel and why, and then created their own artwork keeping these ideas in mind.
They discovered different mediums from sculptural installations to video art to painting and understand how they are used to tell stories and draw attention to the world around us. By exploring and developing their own emotional responses to the artworks, they delved into the minds of the artists and tried to fully understand the works, while at the same time learnt to express ourselves.
The emphasis was on interaction and fun throughout ensuring kids had a lively and memorable time!
