‘Society of Contemporary Artists’ is a foremost artists group of India. This Kolkata based institution of contemporary artists formed in 1960 has made significant contribution towards evolution of modernism in Indian art during its sojourn of last 55 years. Artists of different generations work together in this group that makes their contribution very living and contemporaneous.
The current body of sculptures that is to be displayed in the show was facilitated by and created at the Bachhawat Foundation located at the rural environment of Badu about 20 km north of Kolkata. The foundation encourages technical support, to the practice like metal casting print making, studios and artists’ residency. Along with the 22 member artists of ‘Society’ three invited guest artists have also worked together. They are K.S. Radhakrishnan, Chandra Bhattacharjee, and Tapas Biswas.
The present members of the ‘Society’ are Aditya Basak, secretary of SCA, Akhil Chandra Das, coordinator of the casting faculty, Atanu Bhattacharya, Atin Basak, Bimal Kundu, Dipak Banerjee, Ganesh Haloi, Lalu Prasad Shaw, Manik Talukdar, Manoj Dutta, Manoj Mitra, Manu Parekh, Niranjan Pradhan, Pankaj Panwar Partha Dasgupta, Rajen Mandal Sanat Kar, Srikanta Paul Suhas Roy, Sunil Das and Sunil Kumar Das,
The affecting demise of Sunil Das on 10 August 2015, created a void within the close knit of the perennial artists’ group in India. But, Sunil Das had completed his last works for this exhibition, and Aakriti Art Gallery along with the Society of Contemporary Artists’ will celebrate the life and work of Sunil Das through this show.
Each of the 25 artists have contributed two works in bronze with which an exhibition is going to be held at the Delhi chapter of Aakriti Gallery in the month of September 2015. Every work reflects the personal concept and formal attitude of the artist. Most of the works are based on human faces revealing the temporal turmoil. Some works are based on different subjects like fantasy oriented grotesqueness, landscape and tantrik imagery. The exhibition will reveal the multiple expressions of our contemporary sculpture. On the preview evening of 11th September, K S Radhakrishanan, Manu Parekh, Aditya Basak and Atin Basak will be present, representing the Society of Contemporary Artists’.
