AIFACS (All India Fine Arts & Crafts Society http://www.aifacs.org.in) is one of the most oldest art organization established in 1928 at New Delhi, India and during several years this organization have been continued to organize major programs such as art shows, art camps and publishing art news in web and bulletin. The building of this organization is situated in the heart of New Delhi metro city beside the Janpath Road and provides four large sized & well equipped exhibition galleries including a spacious garden area to create a beautiful green environment & ambience. Many recognized and eminent artists, also government officials, VIP personalities are attached with AIFACS and govern this organization. During the whole year artists coming from different parts of India organize their shows to get a lot of success as like as promotional feed back. All along AIFACS have been played an important role in the arena of modern Indian art.
Last year I was appeared here with one of my friend Naba K Chakrabarty who was called by AIFACS to join the art camp that was to me an interesting point to visit the camp and different museums in Delhi. This year in the end of February I was called by AIFACS for joining the senior category artists’ camp on 4th March to 6th March 2018. I appeared on 27th Feb. to receive a letter from IFACS official to sign up an agreement to join the camp and I took shelter in one of my friend Sushanta’s home at Inderpuri, a suburban colony area in New Delhi, later in CR Park for five days and finally I went back to LKA guest house for five days including those three camp participating days because of nearest place of AIFACS art camp. During the ten-day program I visited Craft Museum which is mostly an important museum on crafts created by aboriginals from different states of India, I met some people for my personal matters and so many artists who had come at Delhi for their own purpose. Among them, an artist named Chickmath who was a participating artist in the camp and came from Karnataka (a state of India) became closest to me to share ideas and thoughts. He was also engaged in preparation to organize his group art show at LKA gallery that have been continued till the day. The most important, vibrating & interesting retrospective show by artist Vivan Sundaram that I visited in KNMA (Kiran Nadar Museum) on 7th March which was curated by Robina, one of the museum director of KNMA. All along I got plenty of pleasure to visit this exhibition during few hours, the last day of mine at Delhi.
I came back home on 9th March and start to take preparation for next program, a group show (named SOAP OPERA) in other metro city Mumbai that would be organized at Jahangir Art Gallery, from 10th to 16th April, 2018 that’s an other story to publish news & info later and now I publish here some photos on AIFACS Art Camp.
