Photos from the Ichhamati event

On Thursday October 22nd, Bappaditya (Bappa) Biswas presented On the Banks of the Ichhamati. The woven textiles told the story of the famous blue mutiny - an uprising caused by British planters forcing the peasant population to grow indigo rather than food. Bappa spoke eloquently on Bengal, its history and weaving traditions. It was our first exhibition held at our new exhibition space in Maiwa East. Attendance was good and the space was full. Music was provided by Red Light Monastery. Here are some photos from the event.
