(Until January 20, 2019)  In the turbulent aftermath of India’s 1947 declaration of independence. a group of artists formed the Progressive Artists’ Group. The Progressive Revolution: Modern Art for a New India examines their ideology and how artists from different social, cultural, and religious backgrounds found common cause. Spectacular paintings from the 1940s to 1990s demonstrate a vision for a new India….and the restaurant is lovely!

This is part of the Season of India, a series of programs at the Society; here’s a sneak peek:
