‘Fellowship’– an art exhibition by Fulbright Alumni makes a splash at Ojas Art Gallery from January 13-19, 2017.
Presented by the US Embassy, USIEF and Ojas Art, this is the first exhibition to bring together 21 Indian artists who won Fulbright Fellowships in the visual arts over five decades, from 1964- 2015.
“This exhibit brings together the work of 21 Indian artists and offers them an opportunity to showcase their collective Fulbright experience,” Adam Grotsky, Executive Director, United States-India Educational Foundation (USIEF), said.
During the course of their grant period, the Fulbright artists travelled across the United States and engaged in creative research in universities, institutes, museums, art centres and ateliers.
The art show will represent multiple mediums of visual arts and will include photography, sculpture, paintings, video art, installations and graphic art, “As the artists come from a diverse cross-section, this show is really a corroboration of Indian artists going to the US and observing the nuances of the cross-cultural exchange,” says Anubhav Nath, Curatorial Director, Ojas Art.
“This exhibition will showcase contributions that artists have made in fulfilling US Senator J. William Fulbright’s mission to promote mutual understanding across nations and Jawaharlal Nehru’s affirmation that culture widens the mind and the spirit,” curators of the show and Fulbright alumni Kathryn Myers and Pradosh Mishra said.
Kathryn Myers is a professor of art at The University of Connecticut while Pradosh Mishra is a professor of the history of art, Banaras Hindu University.
