The Idolized Muses: A Group Show

June 25-July 31, 2021

Akara Art, 1st Floor, 4/5 Churchill Chambers, 32 Mereweather Road, Colaba, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Akara Art presents The Idolized Muses, a group show exploring identity and the nature of the representation of women in the Indian arts.

This exhibition features artworks by Hemen Mazumdar, MF Husain, Amrita Sher-Gil and Adi Davierwala who want to rouse the ‘muse’ from her void and give her an agency. Whereas sculptures by Dhruva Mistry and G. Ravinder Reddy and paintings by N.S. Bendre and B. Prabha use the female form to reveal her role and status in the history of India. Whether as a muse or as a model, the role of women in Indian society can be experienced through this exhibition.

Part of the exhibition are artworks by A Davierwala, Amrita Sher – Gil, Anjolie Ela Menon, Bikash Bhattacharjee, B Prabha, Dhruva Mistry, Hemen Mazumdar, KG Subramanyan,  KK Hebbar, MF Husain, NS Bendre, and G Ravinder Reddy.
