APPARAO GALLERIES are very excited to launch three new clubs to create a platform for lovers of art and culture, film enthusiasts and textile collectors. We are launching the following clubs in June 2012:
The Film Club will gather once a month at Apparao Galleries. We will focus on screening films that you will neither find in the big theatres nor buy on the street. It will be movies about art and artists from all over the world; independent films, old and new classics and the like. This will be more than just a film club, we are aiming for it to be platform for film enthusiasts and film lovers to gather, discuss, educate themselves and be exposed to the wonder that is cinema.
The first film will be "Nainsukh" which will be screened on the 23rd of June 2012 at 6pm. “Nainsukh” was a miniature artist, and this film is a recreation of his paintings on film. It has been directed by Amit Dutta with the consultation of the renowned artist and specialist Dr. B. N. Goswami. It was made for the Rietberg museum in Zurich for the exhibit, ‘The Way of the Masters’ which was touted as one of the best art events of 2011.
