Akara Art Gallery celebrates its 10th anniversary with a solo exhibition of Prodosh Dasgupta's sculptures
Akara Art Gallery in Colaba is celebrating their 10 year anniversary with 'In Quest Of Form and Content', a solo exhibition of works by the late Prodosh Dasgupta, a pioneer of contemporary Indian sculpture.
Prodosh Dasgupta's quest for form and content derives its motivations from his explorations of universal themes with a thorough and deep understanding of the South East Asian visual culture. It is amply evident that his interests lay in the evolution of a pertinent language for the expression of content that be pertinent to the indigenous culture and its contextual articulation. Dasgupta's sculptural creations transform embryonic origins into sculptural forms and traverse a course that establishes his works amongst the distinctive personalities in the context of the evolution of Modernism in Indian Sculpture. The large body of his works bears ample testimony to his convictions, beliefs and academic articulations so rare as a commitment to life as part of one's creative pursuits.
The exhibition features a selection of 18 bronze sculptures which bears his prolific style of rhythm, form and vitality.
When: Ongoing - until October 31
