We are excited to begin the new year with
Creative Circuit: The Art of K G Subramanyan
from the 1950s to 2000s

An online auction of works by the prominent modernist, from the estate of K.G. Subramanyan managed by The Seagull Foundation for the Arts.
The works in this sale represent key highlights from his versatile career and are a testament to his unique style rooted in mythology and folk tales. The 24-hour online auction features a total of 120 lots and will be held on saffronart.com on 19 – 20 January 2021.


And to ring in 2021 here is a calendar that features specially made digital collages by Sunandini Banerjee. A treat for the eyes, this limited-edition calendar is a tribute to women who, through their daily, often unacknowledged labour, help make the world a better place.


And from History for Peace here is a curated reading/viewing list.
Hope the new year brings light and joy!

71 years ago on 26 November, the Indian Constitution was adopted by the Constituent Assembly, replacing the Government of India Act 1935 and imparting the nascent Indian nation constitutional supremacy. What better occasion to get your young ones introduced to this document if they haven’t been already? Here’s a wonderful reading Gulan and Jayant Kripalani recently put together for us of former Chief Justice Leila Seth’s 𝘞𝘦, π˜›π˜©π˜¦ 𝘊𝘩π˜ͺ𝘭π˜₯𝘳𝘦𝘯 𝘰𝘧 𝘐𝘯π˜₯π˜ͺ𝘒 (Puffin, 2010). Listen, re-familiarize, share.
