The Gallery Rasa Archives
Gallery Rasa Archives is an ever evolving and ongoing effort to bridge the gap between knowledge and those who seek it. Initiated in 1993, GRA has grown to encompass a comprehensive collection of rare journals, books, newspaper articles, catalogues, and artist correspondences encompassing different art practices, classical Indian art, folk art, crafts and film studies.
GRA functions through its two pillars: Visual Archives and Bibliography. The Bibliography section offers insights into diverse range of subjects spanning Indian Art, Crafts, Architecture, Film and Culture.
The Visual Archives addresses the urgent need for a platform to study the art practice of individual artists, to analyze various movements in art history and to conduct in-depth research in specific mediums and artist initiatives.
The two pillars compliment and strengthen each other and in cohesion will allow you to forge new ways of perceiving and interpreting. This, we hope, will give impetus to art aficionados, historians, archivists, students, academicians, professionals and even an enthusiast, to seek a broader understanding of art and culture in our nation.
