New Delhi, September 2, 2013
Union Minister for Culture Chandresh Kumari Katoch inaugurated an exhibition on India's weaves and embroideries at the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA).
Titled "Resurgence -- Revival of Indian Embroideries", the exhibition of classic Indian embroideries has been curated by Asif Shaikh.
Speaking on the occasion, Ms Katoch said India had huge untapped potential of craftsmen and artisans and such platforms paved the way for the restortion of the indigenous handicraft and enhance inter-stat cultural discourse.
"It’s overwhelming to see Indian handicrafts getting huge recognition from across the globe," she said.
A symposium on "Textile and Embroidery Traditions Across India" was also organized on the occasion.
The exhibition is open for public viewing from September 2-15 at IGNCA here, an official press release added.
