Islami Tahjeeb Ke Rang
EXHIBITION : Muslim Religious Posters and Calendar Art
by Yousuf Saeed
Indian cities offer a wealth of popular visual art: from brilliant billboards along the streets and facades, movie posters in buses, railway platforms and shops, to Bollywood movies themselves. An essential popular art, often sold at roadside stalls near temples, mosques and shrines in India, is the religious posters, calendars, and other decorative material for the devotees. While it is easy to find religious posters for a Hindu devotee in large numbers and variety in India, it is also not very difficult to get posters depicting Muslim themes and folklore. This visual art installation of about 60 posters features the popular devotional art of Indian Muslims that depict the images of Mecca, Medina, Quranic calligraphy, talisman, local shrines, saints and their miracles in rich iconography.
Address : N-13, Batla House Extension
