30 March - 18 July 2010. Largely unknown to the western world, the Adivasis people make up the folk communities of India's indigenous population and are spread across the entire territory. Although they live among the wider Indian peoples, they have kept alive their own traditions throughout the centuries, such as dance, music and theatre. Their creative output is both utilitarian and sacred. This exhibition casts light on their art and includes wall paintings of the Rathava tribe from Gujarat, tribal bronze figurines from Orissa and Chattisgarh, and wooden sculptures from Karnataka and Bihar.
Tues, Wed, Sun: 11.00-19.00. Thurs-Sat: 11.00-21.00. Closed Monday
