Art and History exhibition by CCCS

MANIPAL: The Centre for Creative and Cultural Studies (CCCS) organized a two-day National Seminar and Art Exhibition, funded by Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR), on ‘Indian Art and Art History,’ at the KMC Interact hall on July 22-23. The seminar included presentations explaining the Yakshagana dance form and the folk art of the Karavali region.

The displayed paintings and sculptures were the works of elderly artists from around this region. “Each work has its own identity and the concept of the identity becomes stronger when you communicate the same concept with identical groups,” said the chief guest, Prof. Viveka Rai, former Pro Vice-Chancellor of Hampi Kannada University, while speaking of art forms and their ability to express ideas beyond boundaries.
