Remembering Urs Widmer, who passed away on 3.4.2014.
One of Switzerland's most important writers and a wonderfully humorous man—a delight to know and talk to.
Seagull Books is proud to be his publisher. It is a blessing that his voice lives on through the written word.

For the past twenty five years The Seagull Foundation for the Arts has been actively supporting, nurturing and disseminating creative and critical activity in the field of the arts in India, especially fine arts, theatre and cinema, out of a deep conviction and commitment to the belief that the arts are everybody’s responsibility and a social commitment.
The only one of its kind multi-faceted arts organization in the country, Seagull fulfils the need of the arts community in a unique manner— promoting collaborative and experimental arts activity across and within disciplines; publishing in the arts and culture and media; making available documentation and critical commentary; working with youth through the arts to address issues of social concern.

New Works by K.G. Subramanyan
13 March 2014 to 25 March 2014
11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily Visual Arts Gallery, India Habitat Centre,
Lodhi Road, New Delhi

Seagull curates and presents art exhibitions—major retrospectives by senior artists as well as the so-called 'non-saleable' aspect or area of an artist's work, which commercial galleries are reluctant to exhibit. Intervening qualitatively and making a positive difference to the aesthetics of the exhibition, the entire undertaking is a partnership between the artist and the organization.

Seagull Books (estd 1982) has been crafting books with an eye to both exceptional content and radical design. What began as an instinctive and highly risky business of publishing books—books on theatre, visual arts, alternative cinema, philosophy, culture—continues to be a passionately felt need of the hour: manuscripts that need to see the light of day, to reach a readership, to stimulate minds, to change outlooks.
