Tamarind Art

Incredible India at 60! celebrates our arrival at the 60th anniversary of independent India. Tamarind Art is very proud to be a part of this celebration and is delighted to host an exhibition Incredible Diversity: rediscovering India's ancient legacy of compassion, photographs by Benoy K. Behl. This exhibition has been organized by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Government of India and is a part of the Incredible India celebrations in New York City.

Behl's photographs take us on an enthralling, 2,500-year journey of India where multiculturalism was a way of life rather than a lofty ideal. These images reveal a rich tradition of collaboration between various faiths that resulted in a unique artistic heritage and a gentle, sophisticated philosophy. This exhibition establish that every conceivable faith, be it Buddhist, Christian, Islamic, Jain, Jewish, or Zoroastrian coexisted without division or discord in ancient India. This discovery transforms 'Incredible Diversity!' from a photography exhibition into a profound message from the past -- one that gives us hope for the future in an age of extreme ideological conflict.

Opening reception & press conference: 22 September 2007 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm RSVP - rsvp@tamarindart.com
