By Divyabhanusinh, Asok Kumar Das, Shibani Bose

Launch of Indian Ceramics: History and Practice
Date: 5 January, 2018
Marg’s December 2017 magazine was unveiled at the Jindal Mansion, Mumbai on Friday, January 5, 2018. Our co-editor Naman Ahuja introduced the session. What followed was an engaging discussion chaired by Naman, with guest-editor Kristine Michael, gallerist Amal Allana, curator Pooja Sood and Art India editor Abhay Sardesai providing their different perspectives on how and why ceramics has been integral to Indian tradition and art practice but has for the longest time not been given due recognition within the art world. Amal Allana and Pooja Sood highlighted how they made pioneering attempts from the 1980s to showcase developments in the field. All agreed that more recently there has been a rekindled interest in ceramics because of bolder decisions being taken by practitioners and exhibition organizers to experiment and market these works along with those of more established artists.
