Home is a Place, curated by Kishore Singh, explores the visual world of the home as a physical space having both an exterior and an interior, with all its magic, hope and memories, in villages and towns.

Featuring a diverse selection of homescapes, still-life compositions, pastoral lives and bourgeoise preoccupations, moments beautiful and ugly, life hurried or indolent, personal space, and the lives within these homes, much before the lockdown caused us to evaluate the place that became central to life itself, the exhibition, beginning with new art practices from the late nineteenth century onwards, is an ode to the place most of us regard as our refuge and sanctuary.

Divided into five sections, the span covers One’s Own Homestead, Pastoral Lives and Living, The Glimpsed Interior, The Life Bourgeoisie and Intimations of Intimacy through a careful selection of 130 rare works of art and 76 artists including Nandalal Bose, Sakti Burman, Chittaprosad, Indra Dugar, Nemai Ghosh, M. F. Husain, Rabin Mondal, K. C. S. Paniker, Gogi Saroj Pal, Jamini Roy, P. T. Reddy, S. G. Thakar Singh, F. N. Souza and many more.
