A panel discussion chaired by Jatinder Verma [Director, Tara Arts] followed by a unique evening of music in celebration of India past and present.
Leading contemporary artists respond to the collections at the National Maritime Museum that relate to India and 'the East'. This discussion reinterprets these artefacts from an Eastern perspective, incorporating frequently overlooked maritime connections between India and Britain in the formation of empires as well as the rich tapestry of India's heritage today. The discussion will be followed by a special performance of traditional classical museic by Guru Syed Ahmed and company.
Panel includes Sunil Gupta, Sukhdev Sandhu, Ansuman Biswas and John Pandit [Pandit-G, Asian Dub Foundation].
