Art Exhibition Gets Underway

IMPHAL, Dec 27: To encourage young artists and provide a platform to show-case their works, an art exhibition, which would go on till December 30, has begun from today at Manipur Press Club here.

Aptly titled ‘˜Young Mood-II’, the art exhibition is being organized by Neo-Gen Contemporary Artists, Manipur and is being sponsored by Manipur State Kala Akademi.

Inaugurating the exhibition as chief guest, Secretary in-charge of Manipur State Kala Akademi S Bedeshwar Sharma pointed out that patronage of art in Manipur is still lacking. There may be public support to some art forms like Shumang Leela, Matamgi Eshei, etc, but it is almost non-existence when it comes to fine art.

Furthermore, he pointed out that at one time, fine art in Manipur was taken up by only a few people in some concentrated centre. But today, many young artists in different parts of Manipur have taken up fine art as a profession. This is an encouraging sign for the art form.

Presiding over the inaugural function, secretary of Neo-Gen Contemporary Artists, Manipur Ch Lalit Singh observed that apart from fine art being still at a low ebb in term of development in Manipur, artists in this art form do not get much opportunity for exposure.

This has led to migration of many fine art exponents from Manipur shifting their base to other States. So, to bring together these artistes and with the stated objective of encouraging young artistes, Young Mood-I had been organized. To carry forward this mission, Young Mood-II is being organized and it will go on to Young Mood-III, IV, etc, in the years to come, he informed.

Such exhibitions would also help in identifying the talented artistes and provide a platform for them, he hoped.
