Description

The catalouge of the seminal exhibition on Indian architecture, ancient and modern, that travelled the world. Vistara was part of ‘The Festival of India’ – a series of major exhibitions in the 1980’s organized by Pupul Jayakar, that the Govt. of India presented around the world: in London, New York, Moscow, Tokyo, Berlin, and so forth. This particular exhibition on the Architecture of India was put together by a small committee headed by Charles Correa, which included Pravina Mehta, Devangana Desai, Uttam Jain and Dilip Purohit. Vistara presents not only the great monuments of Indian history but also examples of the vernacular habitat that existed alongside – and the beliefs and mythic imagery that had generated them both. The video you are about to see is a single-screen condensation of a 9-projector multi-media presentation created by Imtiaz Dharker to articulate the central themes of the exhibition.
