Surrendra Paul Art Gallery and Sangeet Shyamala in collaboration with Art Alinda present An Exhibition from Calcutta, featuring works of nine Bengali artists — Bikash Bhattacharya, Chintamani Kar, Indra Dugar, Jogen Chowdhury, Kartik Pyne, Paritosh Sen, Rabin Mondal, Shyamla Dutta Roy, and Somnath Hore. The exhibition is curated by Jyotirmoy Bhattacharya.

The mid-twentieth century Bengali artists were determined to find a new way to portray their art that would emphasise the life, culture, and political shape of the subsequent time. Bengal, specifically Calcutta ,saw an array of political changes such as the Bengal partition, the Bangladesh Liberation War, Naxal and Leftist movements. Through this era, artists were searching for a way to portray modernism in art. The show exhibits artworks from this era to visualize the journey of Calcutta’s art movement.
