Voice of Art 2019

The second edition of the Arts-based inter-school initiative, Voice of Art 2019, an endeavour  by Nirmal Bhartia School to encourage students to think outside the box by interpreting the theme, ‘PHATA POSTER NIKLA HERO’, in their own unique manner. Non-competitive and non- restrictive in format, it gave the students an opportunity to present their ideas using various media of art as they delved deeply into and critically reflected upon the sources and origins of widely held tropes of heroism. The students examined the stereotypes that exist, conceptions and representations of heroes and heroism, as well as the influence or inspiration that shapes their ideas.

The first phase of the event involved a debrief session where the participants were introduced to the event. Workshops by Mr. Khodke, a practising artist, illustrator based in Delhi and Ms. Nandy, a visual artist and art educator, took the students through varied media of art which they could explore during the project.

As a culmination of the challenge, the work of the students was displayed at a specially curated exhibition, on Friday, 16th and Saturday, 17th August 2019 at Indira Gandhi Centre for Arts, New Delhi, where the participating teams received expert and valuable feedback from an eminent panel of experienced art educators, artists and thought leaders as well as their peers.

It was indeed a proud privilege for all of us to have been graced by eminent personalities from the world of liberal arts. Our chief guest and keynote speaker, for the occasion, Ms. Anita Dube is an Indian contemporary artist whose conceptually rich, politically charged work has been widely exhibited at major museums and galleries all over the world. The Guest of Honour, Mr.Arun Kumar HG , a contemporary artist and sculptor of high repute, explores the relationship between the spread of consumerist culture and the decline of natural resources through his sculptures.

The students from participating schools attended numerous workshops inculcating liberal arts. The workshop titled “The Conceptual in Art” was led by Mr. Frank Schlichtmann, a theatre workshop by Mr. Karan Arora was thoroughly enjoyed by the students, Ms. Jeeva Raghunath’s art of storytelling left the audience asking for more and Mr. Inku Kumar imparted the skills of calligraphy.

Aimed at fostering ‘different ways of seeing’ through media of art, the participation of children in this non–competitive event reaffirms our faith and hope in our youth. It was indeed reassuring to see that the students are able see beyond the stereotypes and are ready to bring about the change that they wish to see in the world…
