History meets art

The India Foundation for the Arts in collaboration "with Goa Chitra organised two unique exhibitions namely 'Unraveling Stories' curated by Lina Vincent at Carpe Diem, Majorda and 'layers' curated by Aparajita Bhasin at Goa China, Benaulim.

Lina's exhibition 'Unravelling Stones' brought together the artworks of 12 artists who were in vited by the curator to engage with the Goa Chitra collection. The artworks are a result of their multilayered exploration of varied aspects of the material culture of the objects. Through drawing painting, sculpture and lens-based art, the compilation unravels different stories that lie beneath the obvious records of history.

'Layers' is an immersive media exhibit of artefacts from the Goa Chitra. Aparajita has digitally documented select objects to create 3D models using cutting edge immersive mediums such as virtual reality and augumented reality. Visitors to the museum were invited to view the virtual reality film which contextualised artefacts from the museum in a surreal virtual world, and to play the augmented reality mobile game set within the museum.
