    This vibrant exhibit features the works of eight contemporary artists belonging to a tribal clan of Central India, the Pardhan Gonds. Using a variety of modern media—including acrylic paintings on canvas, ink drawings on paper, silkscreen prints, and animated film — the artists have created unprecedented depictions of their natural and mythological worlds, traditional songs, and oral histories. Rich in detail, color, mystery, and humor, these artworks brilliantly employ modern means to evoke the pre-modern psyche. Presented by the South Asia Studies Department at Wellesley College.
