Sarmaya X Ojas Art present ‘Echoes of the Land’

Exhibition brochure | Featured artists | Program guide

Sarmaya and Ojas Art are thrilled to announce Echoes of the Land – Art bears witness to a changing planet, opening Thursday, 3rd November 2022 at Ojas Art in Mehrauli, Delhi.

The two-week exhibition will showcase the works of 20 artists from the Sarmaya collection, who bear witness to our primordial-yet-precarious connection with the earth. Collapsing boundaries between traditional and contemporary art practices, the show will present the evolving perspectives of Indian art in the age of the Anthropocene.

The 20 artists in our show belong to different generations and represent a multitude of Indian art traditions. Contemporary or traditional, their art has a strong sense of place. Sometimes it’s rooted in the shade of a Mahua tree, sometimes in the green hills of Assam. The artworks in our show are animated by pride, nostalgia, devotion, idealism and yes, even rage, as they contemplate our evolving—and devolving—relationship with the planet.
