S.H. Raza: Traversing Terrains opened at the Piramal Museum of Art, Mumbai, on 24 June 2018 and will be on view till 16 December 2018. The exhibition is accompanied by a diverse programme of events including talks, film screenings, workshops and walkthroughs designed to increase the accessibility of Raza’s work for a wide range of audiences.
Designed as an engaging and immersive exhibition, S.H. Raza: Traversing Terrains presents the story of Raza’s life from the early 1940s to the late 1990s through his paintings accompanied by rare archival photographs, diary extracts, and written correspondence between the artist and his contemporaries. The exhibition is curated by Vaishnavi Ramanathan, curator and art historian, Piramal Museum of Art, and Ashvin E. Rajagopalan, Director, Piramal Museum of Art, with exhibition design by Gallagher & Associates.
In keeping with the Piramal Museum of Art’s mission to make the exhibition accessible and engaging, an extensive outreach programme has been put together that draws upon key themes in Raza’s work and the narrative focus of the exhibition. After the success of the July and August events, the museum has announced an exciting series of events for September which include walkthroughs, studio visits and art workshops.
