Cocoa and Jasmine takes #thecraftproject to the Indira Gandhi National Centre of Arts, supported by the Ministry of Culture. Join us on the evening of 27.4.19 to view our curated textile installation ‘SAFED’ celebrating the diversity in our culture through textile crafts, a photo exhibition displaying documentation of 7 different crafts, and panel discussion on the relevance of craft documentation and Indian Aesthetic globally.
The Craft Project is a research and documentation project conducted by Cocoa and Jasmine, an independent culture travel magazine. Through this project, the organisation wishes to document tangible anthropology i.e material culture of a place with a focus on textile crafts and comment on its relevance in the contemporary space. The exhibition will display the journeys taken from East to West of India including Kolkata, Maheshwar, Jaipur and Ahmedabad as well as a textile installation including weaves, prints and embroideries from different parts of India. We will be engaging in a dialogue to understand the relevance of craft documentation with industry experts.
