Vernacular in the Contemporary

Jackfruit have curated an exhibition of works from the Lekha and Anupam Poddar collection as well as newly commissioned works by artists who are usually categorized as makers of folk, tribal and traditional art. At Devi Art Foundation, the two parts of the exhibition will feature some sixty artists who practice forms of painting and sculpture. Initially over 300 artists were contacted, 90 selected and 30 commissioned to make painted and sculpted works.  The fieldwork and documentation is now an art historical archive since all selected artists were interviewed and photographed in their studios and workspaces. Jackfruit and Devi Art Foundation have created a curatorial agenda on the question of work and process, which provides these artists space and resources to develop and execute new projects and expand their practice. Jackfruit oriented the new commissions and co-designed the exhibition with DAF.
