This week we ran Artsome’s first ever educational course! Our Subscribers were sent profiles of five famous Indian Contemporary artists for five consecutive days. These included Subodh Gupta, Thukral & Tagra, Bharti Kher, Jitish Kallat and LN Tallur. We ended the course with a Twitter Chat earlier today from 4-5 pm on our official Twitter page @artsome101.
Themes relating to Urbanisation and poignant socio-political concerns in artworks were discussed, along with the significance of using multiple mediums to express ideas. From Bharti’s bindis to Jitish’s fog machine installation, a healthy discussion of Contemporary Indian artists and their artworks ensued. Here are a few glimpses from our discussion.
