Introduction

Nehru Centre’s ART FUSION SHOW is now well established in the art lover’s annual calendar.

Started in 2007 as a window to showcase the work of artists from Maharashtra and Mumbai, it has evolved into a wider canvas for artists all over India. By now artists from West Bengal (2008), from Tamil Nadu and Kerala (2009), from Gujarat and Karnataka (2010), from Andhra Pradesh (2011) and Odisha (2012) have participated.

Our aim is to promote Art and Artists and for the last twenty years the Centre has been organizing exhibitions of artwork of master artists under the “Indian Master’s Retrospective”.

This year’s ART FUSION is to promote artists from Rajasthan along with artists from Maharashtra and much more. It will not only bring to Mumbai the visual arts of Rajasthan but will also provide glimpses of its culture. Along with sparkling works of art, the Centre will reverberate with the sound and rhythm of Rajasthan’s dance, drama and folk music. There will be display of handicrafts and also discourses on Rajasthan’s history, architecture, culture and science (astronomy). The Fusion Show is now becoming versatile.
