Red Lilies, Water Birds — The Saree in Nine Stories
Regular priceSale price
This seminal exhibition curated by Mayank Mansingh Kaul traces shared traditions in the Indian sartorial landscape through 108 textiles from the collection at The Registry of Sarees. Divided into nine stories illustrating cross-cultural currents as they may be understood through specific design elements and techniques, it provokes an examination of definitions and the regional associations through which we understand Indian garments today. The exhibition has attempted to contextualise this conversation within other historical narratives relevant to the production of textiles in the subcontinent by situating its first installation in Hampi, a city which was once at the beating heart of various trade networks connecting the Deccan to the world.
