Lecture: "Mythology in Postcolonial Indian Art"


Ratnottama Sengupta, Arts Editor of The Times of India, a usual collaborator in several written press media since 1978 and curator for more than 30 exhibition projects in Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore, will deliver a lecture about the presence of mythology within the visual arts from an interdisciplinary perspective.

According to her, in India mythology has been the inspiration for the artistic imagination and the arts in general. Contrary to what it may seem, new information and communication technologies have given new momentum to the awareness of its artistic and aesthetic value, rather than reducing its omnipresence.

Author of several books about internationally known Indian artists such as Krishna Reddy or Suhas Roy, in 2001 she was given the National Award for Writings on Cinema and later she carried out the edition of Selected Stories by Chuninda Kahanjyan and an anthology of short stories by Nabendu Ghosh (1917-2007), an essential name in Bengali literature. Her research approaches the visual arts and cinema, field she has excelled in with the Bharat Nirman Award for Journalism and for being a member of the Screening Committee of the Calcutta Film Festival.
