After his return to India\, hi s home country after spending 60 years in France\, the master painter Raza has been living in Delhi and painting. The fact that he would be turning 93 years of age does not in any way diminish or slow down his zest both for l iving and painting. He lives\, now as even before\, to paint. His vast repe rtoire of creative energy\, visual passion and spiritual yearnings remains rich and alive. His imagination dares to explore new visual ideas creating a language which is fresh and yet resonates with intense memories.
&nb sp\;
&lsquo\;Aarambh&rsquo\; is a selection of his new works done in 2 014-15 and yet again confirms his masterly presence on the contemporary art scene. An art luminous with passion and vision- skilful and daring in its imagination.

Tasveer and the Swaraj Art Arc hive are delighted to present Sunil Janah: 'Vintage Photographs\, 1940 - 19 60' at Tasveer\, Sua House\, Bangalore.

Please join us for a glass of wine at the opening reception - that will also be graced by Mr. Ag garwal\, the man behind the Swaraj Art Archive - on 5th March 2015\, 6.30 p m - 8 pm.

Sunil Janah (1918 - 2012) was a prominent Indian ph otojournalist and documentary photographer\, particularly noted for chronic ling the Indian independence movement\, the Bengal famine\, the Nehruvian e ra and his studies of tribal communities.

'Vintage Photograph s\, 1940 - 1960' brings together a range of photographs that are representa tive of three primary streams of his documentation project: peasant and tri bal communities\; dancers\; and industrial scenes.

This exhibi tion is of singular importance since despite his prodigious output\, only a handful of vintage prints made by Janah exist. This is largely due to the fact that although an active photographer\, Janah made relatively few final prints.

Providing a unique opportunity to view original prin ts as a major photographer intended\, these photographs underline their par ticular historical significance through both form and content.

This selection of photographs form part of a larger show originally curat ed by Ram Rahman from the Swaraj Art Archive&rsquo\;s collection.

Established in 2013\, Swaraj is an archive created to document\, preser ve and showcase the art of Mr. Vijay Kumar Aggarwal&rsquo\;s family collect ion\, with the aim of promoting the arts through research\, exhibitions and other initiatives.

Vadehra Ar t Gallery is pleased to announce Excavation/Eruption an exhibition curated by the leading art critic and curator Yashodhara Dalmia. \;
\n
 \;
\n
In the excavations of the past th ere was an unearthing of discoveries which added to the existing knowledge of humanity and civilizations. In the great Mesopotamian arc or the Indus v alley\, the archaeologists of earlier times looked at the smallest terracot ta figurine or the tiniest coin to discover vast tracts of life as it was l ived and as it died. The cradle of civilization in Mesopotamia can now only be considered a never ending vortex of destruction in modern day Iraq. In the present an excavation usually reveals the recovery of a lost body or an explosive device which can cause further violence and death. The whole pro cess of excavation has on the one hand led to knowledge and expansion\, on the other to mass violence. \;
\n
 \;
\n
In the subterfuged reality of the present artists excavate the ir own memory and history and track this journey with markers. The broad pa rameters of day-to-day existence in the India of the present with its opule nce and its seamier underside forms the edgy\, subterranean theme of this e xhibition where 16 artists use diverse methods from site specific works to digital assemblages and paintings to reveal the state of affairs. \;\n
 \;
\nIn this show contemporar y Indian artists scan with an ironical eye\, the new glittering towers and glitzy malls conjuncted with the slums\, cesspools and other detritus of ex istence. The extreme well being and cringing deprivations now largely provi de the binaries of existence. From Ravinder Reddy's iconic head which is no w carrying a load of bricks to Jagannath Panda's global cesspool\, the work s of artists in this show reveal the juggernaut of progress which has left the ordinary person in a state of dismal dessication. The Sri Lankan artist Anoli Perera assembles elevated utopias
\n
which gives life to all planes of existence\, dis rupted by games of power and wealth which release conflict\, terrorism and war. While T.V. Santhosh places man under the radar where the constant surv eillance evokes eerie undertones of violence. \;

This February\, Verve gives you a quick look at the best in arts and culture

\n

This exhibition of photographs\, in association with SITE art space and Th e Collective Studio Baroda\, presents works from the archives of Jyoti Bhat t and Manisha Gera Baswani. Bhatt is known for his black and white photogra phs of rural India\, and Baswani has travelled the world with her images. B oth artists quickly adapted to observing life through a camera lens and beg an to use it as a visual diary of their journeys.

\n

Their common interest in documenting their respective contempo rary surroundings\, by photographing them persistently and exhaustively\, o ffers revelations and observations that would otherwise be off limits from any recorded scrutiny.
