Overview

The contemporary art world is preoccupied with the subject of politics and with new media forms. While this is understandable in a world ruled by a 24/7 news cycle, it has unjustly overshadowed other ways of thinking, seeing and showing. ‘Legacy’ attempts to trace the influence and relevance of one painter through two subsequent generations. The painter in question, Prabhakar Barwe, graduated from J J School of Art in 1959, and went on to establish himself as one of India’s leading artists. His meditative canvases are populated with objects brought into unlikely relationships with each other.
The artists who show alongside Barwe in ‘Legacy’, all JJ School alumni, attempt to reveal something essential about the objects they explore. Their work doesn’t shout out for attention, but quietly draws you into its force field and holds you there. None of them are derivative of Barwe, but there is an overlap of concerns that will hopefully make itself evident in the visual impact of the show.
