As some wise man said, “Art is something that doesn’t need to be confined within four walls, it’ll be as great as it is allowed to fly.”

Today, too many people try to come up with a contemporary art definition but it’s quite a troublesome task. While its title is simplistic and straightforward, its modern-day meaning is not precise. Fortunately, understanding what constitutes as “contemporary” is entirely possible once when one traces the concept’s history and explores its underlying themes.

What is contemporary art?

In the most basic sense, the term contemporary art refers to art mainly, painting, sculpture, photography, installation, performance, and video art today. Though seemingly simple, the details surrounding this definition are often a bit fuzzy, as different individuals’ interpretations of “today” may widely and vividly vary.

The Department of Visual Arts is one of such esteemed institutions which is providing the students with a world-class education in the field of visual arts. The department has successfully completed its 50 years. Some of the prominent professors of Rajasthan Contemporary Art are its alumni and the department is still operating under their high-class experience.

Various open art workshops are organized where the renowned artists from all around the globe and hardworking students get a chance to showcase their talents. One such workshop is ‘Udaipur Spring’19’ which is organized by the department.

The event consisted of 2 workshops, the canvas painting workshop was organized from 24th to 28th Feb 2019 whereas 19th to 28th was the workshop for scrap sculpture workshop.

40 Canvas painting and 10 Modern Art Scrap Sculpture were made during the workshop. The sculptures and the paintings that were made during the 10-day workshop speaks for the event’s success itself. Everyone was eager to contribute their bit to create something exemplary. Regardless of gender, female students showed some exemplary skills as well.

Around 50 eminent artists from all over the globe were invited to take part in the 10-day workshop

2 International Artists, 10 National Artists and 32 to 35 alumni’s of the department participated in the event.

The Artists were:

  • Clemens Sou, Vienna
  • Katherine Karlsoon, Denmark
  • Bhupesh Kavdia, Naseem Ahmed, Dinesh Upadhyay, Sandeep Paliwal, Rokesh Kumar Singh – Udaipur
  • Alay Mistri, Arpit Biloriya, Tahir Merchant – Ahmedabad

Singham – The film is set in a small village in Maharashta, where corruption is rife and crooked politicians call the shots. Ajay Devgn’s character Bajirao Singham is an honest police officer who has the single minded mission to eradicate all the corruption by any means possible. He is inspiring and defines the role of a Police officer. He exemplifies honesty and the will to drive a positive change. These are the traits we all wish to see in our Police.

It is a belief that today Cinema is the most influential form of entertainment. Films are creating an unprecedented impact on our generation and socially-responsible-movies like Singham are taking lead. On the Friendships Day, and a few days before Independence Day, the initiative to bring the entire Police force together under one roof, reminding them that they are the friends of the society and it is their utmost responsibility to maintain our freedom, is absolutely a great thinking and implementation by the management.

Ashoka Cinema & Picture Palace Cinema have been providing quality entertainment to the City of Udaipur since 1945 and shall continue to do so for times to come. We always hope that inspiring movies, motivational movies, and movies with a message continue to release at our cinemas and entertain the people. We express are happiness and pride that Udaipur’s Police have been always around in times of trouble and have kept this city safe and peaceful. We express our gratitude towards them on this Friendship Day for being with us always. We also thank the department for allowing us to have this screening as our humble contribution towards betterment of our society.” said Mr. Mukund Sanghi, on behalf of Ashoka Cinema & Picture Palace Cinema.
