We are thrilled to announce that ‘Painting Everything in the World: An Exhibition on the Books and the Arts’ will formally open with a talk by V. Geetha, Publisher & Co-Director of Tara Books, followed by a discussion on Saturday, 19th February 2022 at 6.00 PM.
Based in Chennai, Tara Books is a collective of writers, designers, and bookmakers, publishing illustrated handmade books for children and adults.
In many art traditions in India, painting is an act of thanksgiving, a fulfillment of the artist’s promise to the creator, to paint him or her anew year after year. If artists fail to do this, it is believed, the world will slip into disease and suffering. In a similar spirit, Tara Books offers this exhibition of their books, prints, posters, and short films, featuring indigenous art. It is their tribute to the enduring power of the creative imagination, which has sustained art communities through difficult times.
The exhibition features work by artists from across the country. The traditions featured are Mata-ni-pachedi, Pithora, Warli, Gond, Bhil, Mithila, Meena, Patachitra, and Patua.
We look forward to your presence!
