the artists community has decided to celebrate the life and work of our senior-most artist in his absence. A man of the streets, we will celebrate it as a street mela, near his huge mural of Nehru on the CSIR building on Rafi marg which was done in the early sixties. Eminent artists will join hoarding painters from Daryaganj to make a huge hoarding, in tribute to the
origins of Husain’s art, which began as a cinema hoarding painter in Bombay.
Street Bands, Balloons, Chat, Kulfi, Fireworks.
A special exhibition of photographs by Parthiv Shah.
Screening of films by Husain....Through the Eyes of a Painter (Berlin Silver Bear Winner), Short films from the 1960's, Gajagamini, Meenaxi- A tale of three cities.
Also hoarding painters from Abbas Studios will paint a hoarding on site.
Come and Celebrate!
