The Cornerstone Building, Liverpool Hope University, L6 1HP

Photography Exhibition by Inni Singh & the Sarvam Foundation

For the first time in Britain, highly acclaimed photographer Inni Singh presents a fascinating exhibition of Indian artists in their element, created in partnership with the Sarvam Foundation, New Delhi.

Too often have the Classical Arts of India been viewed through the lens of tradition. Costumes, stage, jewellery and make-up – often overwhelming and slightly elitist for the average audience member. Bharatanatyam Dancer Nehha Bhatnagar (also featuring in Indika) & Inni Singh, through their past work and specially commissioned shots for Milapfest, have brought some of India’s most well known Gurus, current stars and future ones together to re-look at the way Classical arts are presented. Who is the artiste when off-stage? What is the art when out in the world? Who could possibly collaborate together, leaving aside all differences? Where is the art located between the spectrum of tradition and modernity? What is tradition and what is modernity? What do the arts convey, or do they anything at all?

These and many other thoughts are explored through a photographic exhibition conceptualized and curated by Nehha Bhatnagar and photographed by Inni Singh The Sarvam Foundation-Inni Singh relationship has been a historical connection in the field of performing arts in India. Nehha Bhatnagar, Founder of Sarvam, helped launch Inni Singh–and unleashed upon the arts world a new way of looking at dance & music photography. Inni’s innate talent for aesthetics and beauty has catapulted him as the most valued Classical arts photographer in India today. Nehha & Inni have worked on the world’s largest performing arts Calendar for two years now and through Nehha’s many unique curations, Inni has captured history in the making. A karmic connection, this duo works purely for art’s sake.
