Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur

Jawahar Kala Kendra in collaboration with Kiran Nadar Museum of Art is pleased to bring to Jaipur, Rajasthan, the first ever comprehensive showing of eminent artist Himmat Shah. The exhibition ‘the euphoria of being’ is a celebration of Himmat Shah’s solitary pursuit and inspiring nomadic life lived under an open sky that transformed into a recurrent poetic metaphor of the vastness and infinity of space in his work. A key highlight of the exhibition includes his drawings and sculptures inspired by the landscapes of Rajasthan. Having lived in Bhavnagar, Ahmedabad, Baroda, Delhi, he now lives in Jaipur since 2000. Unlike his retrospective at KNMA-Saket in 2016, this exhibition focuses on his explorations of space through sculpture and architecture, particularly in relation to Charles Correa’s architectural feat at JKK. Tracing and underlining Himmat’s contribution to the discourse of modern Indian art, the exhibition presents around 200 works from the KNMA collection along with loans from few private collections.
