Event Details

March to Freedom opens to the public at the historic Indian Museum, Kolkata. Consisting of 159 works of art and historical artefacts, the exhibition re-interprets the well-known story of the Indian freedom struggle and anti-colonial movement. It draws on DAG’s extensive collection of modern and early modern Indian art, and ranges from eighteenth and nineteenth century European paintings and prints, to unknown works by Indian artists that merit greater recognition, as well as several iconic pieces by celebrated modern artists. Particularly noteworthy are the seldom seen before historical maps, travel and cinema posters from pop culture and collectible figures that add to the diversity of material being showcased in this grand-scale collaboration. Daily activities and special events will be organized for the duration of the show to engage audiences of all ages.
