Kolkata Exhibition 2-23 Dec 2018

The Silk River scrolls are back in Kolkata!

We are thrilled that the new Kolkata Centre for Creativity will feature the 10 hand painted Indian Silk River scrolls in an exhibition to open on 2 Dec 2018.

In addition, there will be a number of special screenings of the Silk River Film by Steve Shaw.  The full Schedule is at the bottom of the page.

The subject of the exhibition is the Patuas and their craft, and to understand more about how this influenced the Silk River scrolls there is a dedicated page here:  Patachitra and Silk River

Many artists took part in the process to make the silk scrolls, read more about it, explore interactive digital versions of them, and see all the artist names on this page:  Making of the Indian Scrolls

We don’t know when the scrolls will return to India, so make sure you see them while you can.  Share your best photos with us on social media:
