THE 10­DAY LONG ART CAMP, WHICH WILL BE HELD AT ANATA HO­TEL OF UDAIPUR, WILL ALSO PRO­VIDE A PLAT­FORM FOR CUL­TURAL AND ARTIS­TIC EX­CHANGE

Ten coun­tries will take part in the first ASEAN Art camp be­ing or­gan­ised by union min­istry of ex­ter­nal af­fairs in Udaipur from Septem­ber 21-29. The event will co­in­cide with the 25th an­niver­sary of ASEAN-In­dia Di­a­logue Re­la­tions.

The As­so­ci­a­tion of South East Asian Na­tions (ASEAN) com­prises In­done­sia, Sin­ga­pore, Malaysia, Philip­pines, Brunei, Thai­land, Cam­bo­dia, Myanmar, Vietnam and In­dia.

The par­tic­i­pat­ing artists from the coun­tries are Chan Sophorn (Cam­bo­dia), Iqro Akhmed Ibra­ham and Laily Subhki from In­done­sia, Kanha Sik­oun­navong, Mo­ham­mad Shahrul Hisham B.Ahmed Tarz­imi from Malaysia, Thet Naing from Myanmar, Naphaphong Ku­rae from Thaiplat­form land and Nguyen Nghia Phuong from Vietnam. The In­dian artists in­clude Bi­noy Vargh­ese, Fara­had Hus­sain, Kalam Patua, Kiy­omi, Laishram Meena Ma­haveer Swami, Sa­min­dranath Majumdar and Tan­moy Sa­manta.

“The artists at the camp will cre­ate an amal­ga­ma­tion of splen­did art work re­flect­ing the deep routed cul­tural con­nec­tion,” stated an of­fi­cial re­lease.

The 10-day long art camp, which will be held at Anata ho­tel of Udaipur, will also pro­vide a for cul­tural and artis­tic ex­change.

A col­lec­tion of 20 paint­ings will be dis­played in a spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tion to be in­au­gu­rated at ASEAN In­dian sum­mit by the Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi in Jan­uary 2018.

The camp will be based on a theme 'Ocean of Op­por­tu­nity’ that aptly re­flects the close civ­i­liza­tion and cul­tural links that In­dia and South East Asia have en­joyed from over one mil­len­nia through mar­itime co­op­er­a­tion.

This is per­haps for the first time that these artists from their re­spec­tive coun­tries will be work­ing on a plat­form and paint­ing on one theme along with the highly ac­claimed artists of In­dia.

The artist with a back­ground in dif­fer­ent styles of paint­ing will in­ter­act and stay to­gether to com­pose a work that will re­flect the cross-cul­tural in­ter­ac­tion.
