Connecting threads

Bhau Daji Lad Museum is showcasing textile practices, traditions and histories in contemporary Indian Art.  Textiles define culture through the relationship between body, cloth, selfhood, attire, identities and fashion. Textiles are inextricably linked to complex histories of legitimation and hegemony, colonial trade, industry, and the freedom movement. Juxtaposed with the collection, the exhibition re-looks at narratives invoked through artworks. It showcases  many forms of artistic practice that have approached the process of art-making by engaging ‘craft’ and ‘traditional’ practices, to address contemporary concerns.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Today, you may be stumped by some mysterious and wonderful event. That, or you may encounter an unexpected yet advantageous incident. It may not exactly be path-breaking, but it is sure to make you take stock of things. Also, you may find it difficult to meet deadlines today. Nevertheless, let people know how important your work is, says Ganesha.
