Pankha: A Collection of Hand Fans from the Indian Subcontinent and Beyond by Artist Shri Jatin Das
May 26, 2018 – June 24, 2018
A unique collection of Pankhas, traditional hand fans, will be exhibited at IGNCA. It features fans and related objects such as paintings, prints and films selected from the vast collection of eminent artist Jatin Das. The artist’s collection began with a single hand fan gifted to him from a friend and has grown over the past four decades to over 5,000 fans into a world-class archive, possibly the largest collection of its kind. The month-long exhibition will also feature demonstrations by traditional craftspeople, fan-making workshops for children and traditional performances at the venue.
