Varanasi, Dec 3 : The Banaras Hindu Universitys faculty of visual arts is holding a virtual exhibition "The Hinterland Conundrum" to showcase the artwork of 12 recently graduated students from all the departments of the varsity.
According to the BHU spokesperson Rajesh Singh, the event will have four online exhibitions of paintings, prints, sculpture, textiles, and ceramics.
The virtual exhibitions will provide these young artists exposure on various social media platforms.
These exhibitions will also facilitate the artists, art lovers, art connoisseurs and art students to see, interact and understand the contemporary expressions of the 12 young artists from BHU.
This dialogue will lead to a heightened awareness about young contemporary artists of the university, he said.
The exhibitions intend to attract the attention of curators, galleries and art critics who promote young and emerging artists.
The idea of showcasing the artworks by recent MFA (Master of Fine Arts) graduates from the faculty of visuals arts came from the various concerns and challenges faced by these young artists.
Varanasi's isolation from mainstream contemporary Indian art further proves to be detrimental despite the city's national and global prominence. Although this isolation has enabled the art students at the faculty of visuals arts in creating a unique oeuvre, but has also led to their marginalization.
