Since the year 2000 of the launch, Indian Art Circle
has consistently presented several contextually relevant, content wise high
quality, curatorially honed, and commercially successful physical art
welcomed by the art-lovers & media alike.
Here's a sampling of
some of our physical exhibitions...
The Edge of Reason was a collection of artists who refuse to have their creativity compromised by the dictates of the art analyst. The title was chosen to cover their special place where rationality surrenders its boundaries to a space vacant with expectations. We chose 27 artists and sculptors to go on this journey with us. The common thread was the freedom of expression through the ages. We had FN Souza, Anjolie Ela Menon, Gigi Scaria , Manjunath N Kamath, Sanjay Bhattacharya to Chitra Joshi. When we work together with the paintings and sculptures we challenge our eyes with what we behold; poetry in process!
Weaving Legacy is our anniversary exhibition, bringing together some of the legends, and legends in the making, of Indian art, together under one roof - thus weaving a legacy that's testimony to our passion and committment for Indian art.
