Spanning craft geographies

By Rinky Kumar | The Hindu

Contemporary artist Praneet Soi’s artwork is usually influenced by his constant search, journey and observation of cultural contrasts between various places. The 45-year-old artist in his ongoing show Notes on Labour pays tribute to artisans and craftsmen of Kolkata, Srinagar, and Guangzhou in China. The works, which are being exhibited in India for the first time, are part of the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum’s curatorial series, ‘Engaging Traditions’, which invites contemporary artists to work with the history, archives and collection.
