Explore the breadth of India’s cultural life and heritage through contemporary artwork from four indigenous artistic traditions. From central India’s Gond and Warli communities, the Mithila region of Bihar, and the narrative scroll painters of West Bengal, more than forty paintings and drawings feature dazzling patterns, vibrant colors, and nonlinear storytelling. "Many Visions, Many Versions: Art from Indigenous Communities in India" presents artwork rooted in traditional culture yet infused with issues of global interest. Among the twenty-four indigenous artists are Jangarh Singh Shyam, Jivya Soma Mashe, Sita Devi, and Swarna Chitrakar. With themes ranging from myth, cosmology, and nature – real and imagined – to village life and contemporary issues, Many Visions, Many Versions highlights cultural roots and current concerns via artists’ distinctive forms, techniques and styles. "Many Visions, Many Versions: Art from Indigenous Communities in India" was organized by BINDU Modern Gallery and toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, D.C.
