In continuance with the last year’s trajectory, the residency, FOOD EDITION-II aims to re-examine the significance and relevance of food in the broader social and cultural context, in its connection with the body or as a primary ritual that fosters engagement, interaction and collaboration. It focuses on examining the notion of 'food' and its myriad articulations in art, exploring these intersections through a critical examination of issues surrounding the politics of food and through food as artistic medium incorporating performance, art installations or interactive events.</p> Thu, 18 Apr 2013 02:16:00 +0000 László Berta - Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre (HICC) - April 9th, 2013 - April 24th, 2013 <p>László Berta was born in Hódmezővásárhely, in a town which is well known about its cultural life. It seems that the town has a special atmosphere what inspired people by visual arts because numerous acknowledged photographer were born there. Maybe the vivid cultural life influenced him from his early age when he began to learn photography and as a student he took pictures passionately. Due to his passion for nature, persistence and outstanding artistic quality he was admitted to Hungary's most dignified nature photographer organization, naturArt in 2000 and he became member of the board in 2004; he is now the vice president of naturArt. He has had several individual and collective exhibitions both in Hungary and abroad like Belgium, Germany, Italy, India and Sri Lanka. His most successful individual exhibitions are: Observed moments, As I saw, Faces of Asia, and Those wonderful birds. His pictures were awarded many times by the Hungarian "The nature photographer of the year", OTP Travel &amp; National Geographic, AVES 2004 in Namur, Belgium, Belgian Nature Photo Expo, but he is most proud of his win in Sri Lanka in 2004 when he won the Sri Lankan nature photographer competition and was elected for the nature photographer of the year in Sri Lanka.</p> Wed, 03 Apr 2013 22:48:58 +0000 Rajesh Baderia - India Habitat Centre - Visual Arts Gallery - April 20th, 2013 - April 24th, 2013 <p>Acrylic &amp; Oil</p> Fri, 15 Mar 2013 01:41:50 +0000 Md.

During her stay, she concentrated on ancient arts and crafts in the contemporary city. Her artistic book 'M.G. Road' - will be presented at the opening of the exhibition.</p> <p>"There will be no place in India - from small villages to big cities - without a road named after Mahatma Gandhi. MG Road is one of the main streets in Ahmedabad. During my four week stay, I combed her way up and down the street at least once a day. Just as Gandhi encouraged people to weave their clothes for independence, I crafted MG Road from 27 images.</p> <p>Ahmedabad is known as the Manchester of the East. The city has been influenced by the rise and fall of the textile mills. Families like the Sarabhais have been instrumental in inviting architects and artists from the west to the city, who have given different representative buildings to Ahmedabad like the City Hall or the ATMA building but also residential buildings like the Sarabhai House which hosts works of international artists.</p> <p>The wooden conference room of the ATMA building seems to me like the heart of the modernist idea. As B.V. Doshi mentioned to me, Le Corbusier allowed the Indian craftsman to express themselves while building it.</p> <p>MG Road builds on the vision of combining the traditional crafts with the modernistic concepts and cares about the local traditions, retaining their qualities in a globalized world, in which everything would be monochrome."

They worked together with the students from the Photography Design department, National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad in August-September 2012. This first-time cooperation between the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad and Academy of Visual Arts, Leipzig, was initiated and supported by Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan.</p> <p>The workshop had a photographic focus on the city-spaces of Ahmedabad.</p> <p>As if undertaking a Parikrama, the students "revolved around" the city of Ahmedabad to focus on their different projects and try to understand and capture the essence of it.The workshop with the students of the two schools had an open, wide artistic canvas. The students covered different topics such as the River Project, birdcages in the old city, musical subculture, the roundabouts in the city, transportation and the meaning of nature in the architectural environment. Conducted by Prof. Heidi Specker and coordinated by Dr. Deepak Mathew of NID. The workshop dealt with the image-making process through portfolio reviews and group meetings.</p> Wed, 27 Mar 2013 23:28:14 +0000 Zarina Hashmi, Aditya Pande, Manisha Parekh, Krishna Reddy, Jamini Roy, F.N.

Sometimes the forms rise in spectral, sinuous shapes that are reminiscent of nature’s forces: the curling of waves, the spinning of a tornado. Sometimes they are like vast lunar landscapes. The artist uses light much like a draughtsman uses a pen. It defines and articulates her vision and through its manipulation she explores the universe both within and without.</p> <p>The crystal – an absolute system of linkage – is key to Parul’s compositions. Re-defining techniques from her study of the art of embroidery, weaving and stitching, she structures myriad materials – nylon monofilaments, acrylic tubes, translucent gels and pigments – that hold crystals at their core. Her juxtapositions probe the visible and invisible systems of organic patterns and our material environment; they portray the beauty of coincidental symmetry of nature and technology; and they comment on the filigree compounds of society and subject in our day-to-day world.</p> <p></p> <p>From <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> Tue, 23 Apr 2013 10:20:42 +0000 Satyajeet Varekar - Jehangir Art Gallery - April 23rd, 2013 - April 29th, 2013 Wed, 24 Apr 2013 22:35:09 +0000 Rohan Pawar, Sandip Tambankar, Kiran Ghanekar - Jehangir Art Gallery - April 23rd, 2013 - April 29th, 2013 Wed, 24 Apr 2013 22:38:01 +0000
