JKK has always been providing us with a glimpse of art via different exhibitions it hosts. Paintings, music photography and what not, we have had it all at the Jawahar Kala Kendra and it is back again with the amazing textile exhibition.

The exhibition beautifully traces the origin and evolution of aesthetics in Indian textiles dating back to the freedom struggle of 1947, including the use of same as an aid in the freedom movement, to the present day India.

The wondrously delicate yet the robust textiles of India has survived through decades because of diversity of skills and technologies to portray them, the perpetual vocabulary of motifs and patterns depicting the innovation in traditions which have been passed on through generations.

 The exhibition designed by Reha Sodhi reflects the fields of art and craft, fashion and design through paintings done on cloth, carpets, rugs and saris showcasing works of numerous designers and artists.

In the lights predominant impulses of various periods in India’s post-independence trajectories, the textiles are presented through broad themes.
