INDIA PORTRAYED

Are we one country? Or are we a subcontinent of nationalities? Which ever way you choose to look at it, the colour and vibrance is unmistakable, as is how photogenic it all is.

This exhibition is a showcase of some of India’s prominent photographers from the field of documentary, travel, fashion, fine art and commercial photography.

This the first time such a wide diaspora of contemporary Indian photographers are exhibiting together.

PORTRAITS FROM AN ISLAND

Curated by Anna Fox and Amit Sheokand

The idea that a photograph can represent who a person actually is has long been debated, and it has been generally accepted that though the image of a face and body represented in a photograph might tell you something about a time and a place, it does not so often tell you much about that individual person.

This new exhibition brings together contemporary photographic portraits by British photographers of British subjects. Read More

HIDDEN STORIES OF GOA

After examining the popular representations of Goa and considering what might be missing, over the last year the students of The One School Goa identified and curated stories which are hidden, unknown and in some cases in the danger of being forgotten.

This exhibition will feature these stories in a visual documentary style.

ARTISTS

Selected visual stories as told by the students of The One School Goa.

FACES OF GOA

Goa is home to people from diverse backgrounds, ethnicity and nationalities.These people are composed, poised, quirky and voluble, and have a story to share.

The exhibition aims to capture such people and their stories and stand shoulder to shoulder with outstanding examples of portraiture from around the world.

GOA IN THE RAINS

Monsoons in Goa is an ethereal experience. Its lush green all over, ponds, lakes, rivers over flowing. Though it rains heavily, life doesn’t stop. People travel several kilometers without complaining. Others sit on the bridges and culverts and fish. Tea stalls here and there sell piping hot vada pau and chai in the evenings. Paddy cultivation goes on in full swing. In short Goa turns into paradise.

ARTISTS

COLOURS OF GOA

Goans are known for their bold sense of colour which is evident in their everyday life. They display these vibrant colours in their streets, homes, temples and just about every where.

This exhibition showcases that spirit of Goa.
