Like a postcard from the past, ‘Post-Age’ stirs up old memories and urges the viewer to engage with the art on display. For this charity exhibition, 187 artists from across India and Ahmedabad have made paintings on postcards. The show’s sales will go towards revitalisation of the fabled Artists’ Centre in Mumbai, which is often remembered as the ‘nursery’ of the Progressive Artists’ Group. Touching a postcard on my fingertips, I was transported into the realm of imagination and nostalgia on entering the exhibition Post-Age. I recalled my mother telling me how exhilarated she felt on receiving postcards from my father, in their early days of marriage. The postcard played an essential role in revolutionising global communication back in those days. But in the digital age, the postcard serves primarily as a remnant, connecting people to emotional memories of the past. But at the Post-Age group exhibition, postcards have been used as canvases for creating visual art, for reminiscing on how human connection may have been lost in the midst of our digital communication processes. This brilliant idea to use postcards in the show came to Nilesh Kinkale, the secretary of Artists’ Centre and Joint Secretary at Bombay Art Society, a year ago. The…

    The final day’s performance of Mahesh Elkunchwar’s Atmakatha, directed by Vinay Sharma, proved an unplanned celebratory finale of the 15-day Theatre Olympics (Ahmedabad). Dramatic art ascended its peak in Kolkata-based Padatik’s production. The overflowing theatre-lovers at the Tagore Hall appreciated even the inbuilt rich silences, a couple of times one or two minutes long, trying to understand the invisible dramatic tension the actors felt. Claps a couple of times in the midst of low-tone conversations on the stage were uncalled for though. Atmakatha was a perfect instance of meaningful complementary roles the text and its stage performance play. The connotative sharpness of the chiselled dialogue in the text with its theme conceived at a heightened level of creative imagination entails for its performance exceptionally engaging interplay of expressive inputs of both…
