On 16th April, I will be at one of our favorite museums – Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Mumbai City Museum for a WORKSHOP | Poetry reading and writing with Rochelle Potkar.
Inspired by our ongoing exhibition ‘New Found Lands: The Indian Landscape from Empire to Freedom’, curated by Dr Giles Tillotson and presented in collaboration with DAG
Join us for a walkthrough of our ongoing exhibition which presents a visual story of landscape painting in India over two hundred years, from an imposed colonial gaze, through Indian accommodation and adjustment, to rejection, and the profusion of new forms of imagery, rooted in the land.
Alongside the walkthrough, Rochelle Potkar will present her verses in response to the paintings. Inspired by the artworks, participants will then be guided and encouraged to write a poem of their own.
