March to Freedom: Group Show

October 6-September 29, 2022

DAG, Bikaner House, Pandara Road, India Gate, New Delhi, Delhi, India

DAG brings March to Freedom to Bikaner House in New Delhi, after a stellar showing in Kolkata, as part of the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, the Government of India’s year-long celebration on the occasion of the 75th year of Independence.

Featuring 160 works of art and historical artefacts, the exhibition re-interprets the well-known story of the Indian freedom struggle and anti-colonial movement through art. Drawing on DAG’s extensive collection of modern and early modern Indian art, it ranges from eighteenth and nineteenth-century European paintings and prints, to unknown works by Indian artists that merit greater recognition, as well as several iconic pieces by celebrated modern artists.

Particularly noteworthy are the seldom-seen-before photographs, historical maps, travel and cinema posters from pop culture and collectible figures that add to the diversity of material being showcased in this grand-scale collaboration.
