Ideas of the Sublime and The Drawing Wall draw upon the twin sources of studio practice and artists' dialogue. The exhibition marks a response to the present age of flux.
 
The sublime, according to the German philosopher Schopenhauer, could be beautiful or malignant, but it always creates a sense of awe. It draws on the twinned emotions of great astonishment and great fear. In a global climate beset by doubt and economic uncertainty, the exhibition Ideas of the Sublime seeks to restore to art its centrality in human experience. 
 
Artists participating in Ideas of the Sublime are Anita Dube, Anju Dodiya, Akshay Rathore, Arpita Singh, Atul Dodiya, Gipin Varghese, Gulammohammed Sheikh, Jitish Kallat, Nataraj Sharma, Neha Thakkar, Paribartana Mohanty, Ranbir Kaleka, Rameshwar Broota, Ravinder Reddy, Rina Banerjee, Tushar Joag and Vivan Sundaram.


Image: Arpita Singh, 'Butterfly', 2012The Drawing Wall brings to the larger exhibition a sense of the artist, his or her materials and methods before the white cube became universal. Its central display will be a wall of drawings that revisits the exceptional draughtsman skills of the modernist generation. It also includes a series of works that critically annotate and introspect on the seminal modernist movement in India.
 
Artists participating in The Drawing Wall are A Ramachandran, Anjolie Ela Menon, Arpita Singh, Atul Dodiya, Chameli Ramachandran, FN Souza, Ganesh Pyne, Jogen Chowdhury, KG Subramanyan, Krishen Khanna, Manjit Bawa, MF Husain, Paramjit Singh, Parthiv Shah, Ram Kumar, SH Raza, Tyeb Mehta and Vivan Sundaram.
