Following its tradition of promoting art and culture, Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) is organizing an exclusive exhibition ‘Phulkari: from the realm of women’s creativity’ from April 16th to May 3rd, 2013. Well known for its vibrant colours, geometric pattern and gaiety, the conventional embroidery from Punjab ‘Phulkari’ is very popular with women across India. As a part of its silver jubilee celebrations, IGNCA is going to display exquisite work by women artisans at the exhibition.

The Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts, established in memory of Smt. Indira Gandhi, is visualised as a centre encompassing the study and experience of all the arts -- each form with its own integrity, yet within a dimension of mutual interdependence, interrelated with nature, social structure and cosmology.

This view of the arts, integrated with, and essential to the larger matrix of human culture, is predicated upon Smt. Gandhi's recognition of the role of the arts as essential to the integral quality of person, at home with himself and society.  It partakes of the holistic worldview so powerfully articulated throughout Indian tradition, and emphasized by modern Indian leaders from Mahatma Gandhi to Rabindranath Tagore.

The arts here are understood to comprise the fields of creative and critical literature, written and oral; the visual arts, ranging from architecture, sculpture, painting and graphics to general material culture, photography and film; the performing arts of music, dance and theatre in their broadest connotation; and all else in fairs, festivals and lifestyle that has an artistic dimension.  Through diverse programmes of research, publication, training, creative activities and performance, the IGNCA seeks to place the arts within the context of the natural and human environment through and interdisciplinary approach.
