 Works of seven modern and contemporary artists, including Nandalal Bose and Atul Dodiya, will figure at the Indian pavilion in its second-ever participation in the prestigious Venice Biennale which begins in May.

The Indian artist lineup at the 58th International Art Exhibition at La Biennale di Venezia (Venice Biennale) also includes Ashim Purkayastha, G.R. Iranna, Jitish Kallat, Rummana Hussain and Shakuntala Kulkarni, pavilion curator, the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA), said in a statement.

The pavilion titled ‘Our Time for a Future Caring’ is themed around Mahatma Gandhi. It will form part of India’s ongoing programme celebrating his 150th birth anniversary.

The pavilion will “critically engage with the many facets of Mahatma Gandhi, considering his philosophical ideas and their place in today’s complex world, in which violence and intolerance are still prevalent”, the KNMA statement said.

The exhibition will begin with the “Haripura Panels” by Bose (1882-1966), an Indian ‘National Treasure artist’ whose works will be shown in Europe for the first time.
