Delhi to host Belgian museum’s Indian art exhibition

6New Delhi, Nov 20 (IANS) The Museum of Sacred Art (MOSA) in Belgium is bringing a multi-dimensional arts project conceptualised around the notion of the spiritual and devotion in Indian art to the capital in March next year, the organisers said Thursday.

The exhibition “Forms of Devotion: The Spiritual in Indian Art” will include about 300 works by over 150 artists chosen from over 1,600 works in the MOSA collection. These works will be exhibited at the Lalit Kala Akademi (LKA) March 21 to April 26, 2015.

“It explores the theme through artistic creations in different forms and styles, across ideologies and philosophies as well as faiths and regions of India,” said a statement.

The exhibition will be held in partnership with the akademi and will extend to all their galleries as well as open spaces at Rabindra Bhawan, in central Delhi’s lively cultural hub.

Initiated by Martin Gurvich, founder and director of MOSA, the exhibition will be curated by Sushma K. Bahl, former head of arts and culture at the British Council and co-curated by Archana B. Sapra, co-founder of Arts4All Trust, a non-profit organisation.

“This has been an amazing spiritual journey, full of discovery, joy, new relationships and friendships. I hope that such a project will bring great awareness of India’s vast and diverse culture and friendships,” said Gurvich.

The exhibition will tour internationally from mid-2015.
