Subodh Kerkar Curates Gandhi Exhibition
On October 2, on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, the exhibition Phir Gandhi, curated by Subodh Kerkar, opened at Bharat Bhawan, Bhopal. The exhibition features work by eight artists, including Kerkar.
Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Kamal Nath presided over the inauguration of the exhibition. The exhibit is an interrogation into the idea of Gandhi in the largely distressed, strife ridden society we live in. “Mahatma Gandhi was not an Indian leader alone,” said CM, Kamal Nath, “He was a global leader.”
Artists presenting at Phir Gandhi were Subodh Kerkar, Shamala B, Ravi Kashi, Navso Parwar, Orijit Sen, Nandesha. Phir Gandhi was exhibited at the Museum of Goa for the past two years and was moved for this year’s special Gandhi Jayanti. This was the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, and all artists were proud to be a part of the celebrations.
