Dialogue of Identities – 2016
Women’s International Art Exhibition


Curated Renuka Kesaramadu

In the Dialogue of Identities, an identity refers to the uniqueness and ownness that each artist is bringing to the field of art, and is serving to the viewers. In this exhibition different artists have expressed their feelings in their own different ways.

Curators’ note
renuka kesaramaduHere in this exhibition we are sixteen artists, nine from abroad and seven from India. “Dialogue of Identities” was a title I used when four women artists exhibited at the Jehangir art gallery, Mumbai in 2014. Now in 2016 we are sixteen artists. Every artist in the exhibition practices her own style of paintings. Here to the viewers the artists seem to be having a dialogue with each other in one place. Viewers can enjoy the feelings of artists through their paintings. Art has a global language; anyone can understand any artist’s works throughout the world through their technique, expression, style, form, space and colors.

With each other’s co-operation we have participated in several shows in different countries, and along with other Indian artists I am enabling the same in Bangalore. In this exhibition artists, art lovers and art students can see and study original paintings. This also helps to think about and manage growth and practice of our art at a global level. Cultural exchanges are always paving the way for globalization.

I personally did not have an intention to hold an exhibition separately for women. However, my contacts with women artists and their co-operation automatically shaped this as a women’s art exhibition.
