The Museum of Goa, in collaboration with the Goa Artist Collective, presents the exhibition, Into The Vault. The exhibit opens for a special preview at 6:30 PM, Saturday, 5 October. Into The Vault will run from 5 Oct – 5 Dec. The exhibition is sponsored by Paul John Whiskey and Big Banyan Wines.
Exhibiting works from 12 master artists of the Goa Artists Collective, this exhibition delves into the recesses of the viewers mind to remind them about the things that make them happy, disdainful, angry and even upset. The Vault refers to a place in our minds where we store our precious and sacred ideas.
The exhibition will feature installations, sculptures, paintings, and found objects of the following artists, practicing in Goa:
1. Akshay Chari
2. Bhisaji Gadekar
3. Dhiraj Pednekar
4. Diptej Vernekar
5. Gaurang Naik
6. Kalidas Mhammal
7. Pradip Naik
8. Rajendra Mardolkar
9. Shailesh Dhabolkar
10. Shilpa Mayenkar
11. Siddharth Gosavi
12. Siddhesh Chari.
The exhibition also asks what it takes to be a museum object, thereby critiquing the idea of a museum. MOG was conceived as more than a repository of objects; rather a laboratory of ideas where all forms of art are in dialogue with each other. With this exhibition, the Goa Artists Collective brings to this laboratory an experiment in breaking the formal conception of the museum.
