The first ever retrospective of one of the most significant women artists in India, Arpita Singh (b. 1937, Baranagar, West Bengal) is here. This exhibition gives an extraordinary opportunity to view the six decades of her art practice. Engaging with her complex view of the world through her seminal paintings, drawings, sketches, watercolours and diaries, it traces the evolution of her distinctive visual language.
The KNMA museum collection houses sixty artworks of Arpita Singh, and approximately 160 artworks are on loan from various private and public collections in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Fukuoka and New York. The exhibition resonates KNMA’s commitment to highlighting the artistic oeuvres and practices of female modernist masters with in-depth retrospectives; previous retrospectives include Nasreen Mohamedi and Nalini Malani.
