Locating Folk Art in the world of Art, Design and Commerce This panel discussion hosted at the Piramal Museum of Art, Lower Parel, addresses the transforming role and visibility of Indian craft in contemporary times through the initiative of designers, auction houses and galleries. It engages with the increasing financial transactions surrounding craft and the inherent unevenness surrounding the same since the popularity of craft ensures that it finds a place in designer stores and auction houses as well as in craft melas and rural markets. However there are complex issues here regarding authorship, tradition and creativity that need to be taken into consideration while dealing with the economics of craft. These issues form the core points of discussion in the panel moderated by art historian and curator Dr.Annapurna Garimella. Speakers: Mr. Amit Kumar Jain – Associate Vice President of Saffronart Ms. Nancy Adajania – Cultural Theorist and Curator Ms. Radhi Parekh – Founder of ARTISANS’ Moderated by Dr. Annapurna Garimella
