This exhibition is the first dedicated display of the University of Melbourne’s collection of thirty vibrant and unusual Madhubani paintings on paper from Northern India. Originally acquired in 1982 as an aid in teaching Hindu mythology by the former Department of Indian Studies, the collection reflects the strong connections between the university’s cultural collections and its teaching programs.
Companion works include Melbourne artist Louise Paramor's series of luminous head-and-shoulder portraits, with simply inscribed first names depicting the Indian artist friends she met during a three-month Asialink residency in 1995 at the Bharat Bhavan Multi-Arts Complex in Bhopal. This exhibition exemplifies the spirit of the ongoing engagement of many Australian artists with Indian culture.
This Wednesday join our resident philosopher Dr Arthur O’Neill as he leads a dynamic group discussion through the BSAP4 exhibition deliberating and debating the world of sport and art. The discussion will give participants the opportunity to deepen their reflections on the worlds of sport and art.
