IHC’s Annual Arts JournalIndia is celebrating its economy and when there is an economic flowering, the arts are given a new leash of life. And we are part of this luxury and privilege of creating new paths and new histories of art and aesthetics. While contemporary Indian art is reaching unbelievable benchmarks in money terms, we at the Visual Arts Gallery are interrogating philosophical aesthetics, but that does not deny the intrinsic value of art. Over the last 14 years, the Visual Arts Gallery has become one of the most significant spaces of cultural consumption. The Gallery is the spring board for the much needed dissemination of high art and the cultural translations of popular art. With the integration of different art forms and a movement towards a multi-disciplinary approach, once again the gallery becomes a pioneer in injecting a much needed trajectory.
The Visual Arts Journal, published annually, becomes the voice of the Visual Arts Gallery, its concerns and motivating ethos. The publication for the past ten years has explored the various facets of the Visual Arts be it critical vocabulary or new-media, digital arts, installation et al. Not only does it have a thematic content to it, but it also has a documentary aspect to it. Every possible event held at the Visual Arts Gallery, apart from the regular exhibitions, is documented. In addition, the journal also serves as a compendium of all the special projects, for instance: lectures, talks, workshops, performance, interactive sessions are all recorded in the journal. In this way the journal becomes a manner of cultural link with our readers. In a single read like a diorama the events of an entire year are run through the journal.
