Monthly Meet The Artist Illustrated Lecture Series
Meet the Artist is a permanent in-house program of JDCA, uninterrupted till the lockdown. We invite artists such as painters, sculptors, potters, architects, photographers, craft persons, and scholars. This is to enrich, sensitise and create an appreciation of all forms of visual art. Since 2001, 237 such MTAs have taken place on the second Saturday of every month. Unfortunately, the unprecedented crisis forced us to pause the program for the last 5 months.
We are delighted to restart it in its new online form with a talk by Mr. Adwaita Charan Gadanayak, sculptor and Director-General of the National Gallery of Modern Arts. He will be speaking on The Role of Art Centres in India. This will be followed by a Q & A, moderated by Nandita Das, trustee, JDCA.
