DAG presents a historical exhibition Tipu Sultan: Image & Distance – an extraordinary showing of paintings, prints, maps and other objects collected from around the world and now housed permanently in India as a part of the gallery collection. Curated by Dr. Giles Tillotson and accompanied by a book with chapters contributed by leading specialists including Janaki Nair, Jennifer Howes and Savita Kumari, the exhibition aims to recount a visual history of the Mysore Wars between the East India Company and Tipu Sultan and explore how the public narrative might have changed 222 years after the siege of Seringapatnam.
