An interactive exhibition with a difference – R.V. Ramani’s Art

-- by Thirupurasundari Sevvel

Beyond the Venue – 4 | An occasional series on art breaking boundaries in the city

As we climbed up the stairs to enter the exhibition, we were welcomed with such warmth by Mr. R.V. Ramani, who bade us observe the works of diverse artists. His exhibit displayed the works AL Aparajithan, Muralidharan Krishnamoorthy, Asma Menon, S.S. Kalairani, K.M. Adimoolam, Subha De, Lykim Lent, Karun, C. Douglas, Indrapramit Roy, Ulrike Arnold, Manu Parekh, Bhagwan Shankar Chavan, Ashwini Bhat, Tozhikazu Kanai, Shilpi Rajan and M Nahesh. There were pieces from the host too, which sparked much conversation. Ramani patiently answered the numerous questions that arose on the subjects of his art, work, and experience. On the second day, the exhibit included a movie screening of his hand-drawn animation films as well as an interaction with artist and film-maker Biswajit Das from Guwahati.

In all, this was an interactive exhibition with a difference, a gathering that celebrated art as well as the audience.
