Kolkata, March 29, 2017: Shri Bratya Basu, Hon’ble Minister for Information, Technology and Electronics, Government of West Bengal, inaugurated in the presence of eminent artist Shri Rabin Mandal and Prof. Sabyasachi Basu Ray Chaudhury, Vice Chancellor, Rabindra Bharati University, the Students’ Annual Exhibition 2017 of the Faculty of Visual Arts, Rabindra Bharati University at The Academy of Fine Arts on March 14, 2017. The Exhibition continued till March 20, 2017.

 

The Exhibition showcased more than 170 items of art – mainly paintings, sculptures and graphics – selected after a very much larger number of entries had been received from students of the Departments of Painting, Sculpture, Graphics (Printmaking), Applied Art, and History of Arts. Awards and Certificates of Merit were given to many of these students.

 

As in previous years, this Exhibition once again reflects the high standards of excellence achieved by the Rabindra Bharati University’s Faculty of Visual Arts, based on several aspects of its distinctiveness as an art institution imparting liberal art education in various ways.

 

The interdisciplinary approach consciously followed by teachers and students has ensured that visual art has always been viewed and understood as a broadminded, democratic language – with the pursuits of the various departments and specialisation complementing each other rather than leading to segregation; with perspectives widened by teachers from established institutional artistic genres helping the understanding and appreciation of not only India’s colonial academic structure, the nationalist approach and the post-Independence modernist Indian approach, but also of contemporary international art; and with horizons of artistic knowledge expanded in myriad ways. The very fact that a large section of the Faculty today is formed by its alumni testifies to how meaningful and effective its approach has been in ensuring continuity and consistency… even though, established in 1972, it is the youngest of all art institutions in Bengal!

 

The broadmindedness of the Faculty’s democratic approach, interestingly, can be traced back much further – to as early as 1916, when Rabindranath Tagore, before shifting his focus to Shantiniketan, set up the Vichitra Sabha at the Maharshi Bhavan, Jorasanko Thakurbari with a view to create a proper environment for promoting several diverse artistic practices. The Vichitra Bhavan, the venue of the Sabha’s activities, is now a part of the Rabindra Bharati University Museum at Jorasanko. The Faculty of Visual Arts, which functioned at the Jorasanko Thakurbari from 1972 to 2002, can justifiably be proud of this legacy, and of giving some shape to Rabindranath Tagore’s dream in the early 20th century.
