Rupa Sood and Sharan Apparao are delighted to announce the second edition of Nayaab, an exhibition celebrating the best of Indian weaves, in New Delhi. The exhibition is an endeavour to showcase the very best in textile traditions of India.
Nayaab strives for excellence and believes in celebrating the best of Indian weaves through curating the best works to showcase the wonders of Indian textiles. This edition of Nayaab focuses on the dyeing traditions of Indian textiles and highlights the edge of design and skill.
“We are one year old and it has been a great journey. We endeavour to move away from the watered down textile crafts and show case the more difficult laborious, old, complicated traditional skills being produced by revivalists who are dedicated to the pursuit of these exceptional skills. We aim to create an exceptional exhibition and are anticipating great response like the previous year,” remarks Rupa Sood, Co-curator, Nayaab.
The exhibition aspires to embody the traditions of the Indian textile heritage and epitomize the stories of the countless hands that have worked to create the textile masterpieces.
“Our pursuit is to promote the textile heritages of India. We would like to invite people and showcase the exclusive work of designers who are using textile skills of India artisans. The idea behind is to bring exceptional work not available in the market otherwise and bridge this gap between the makers and users,” says Sharan Apparao, Co-curator, Nayaab
The collections selected for showcase are exclusive in terms of design, craft and style, and brings with it an opportunity for lovers of Indian textiles the latest styles, made by craftsmen from all over the country.
The exhibition is on display at The Lodhi Hotel, Lodhi Road New Delhi, from December 1st – December 3rd, 2016, 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
