Indian-Russian Modern Art Exhibition "Rickshaw Blues" to Run in Moscow

Indian-Russian Modern Art Exhibition

In spring 2012 Moscow has been hosting a row of events dedicated to the 65th anniversary of diplomatic relations of India and Russia.
      The finishing chord will be the Indian Culture Festival to be held in Moscow from May 17 to June 1. The central event of the festival is the Indian-Russian exhibition of modern art Rickshaw Blues in the State Museum of Oriental Arts, Moscow. It will present paintings by two outstanding contemporary artists - Dr. Manas Roy (Kolkata) and the member-correspondent of the Russian Arts Academy Alexander Tokarev (Moscow) - on the subject of music, dance, theater and poetry. Philosophical approach to art is what is common to both the artists, who also belong to the same generation.
      The concept of the exhibition "Rickshaw Blues" is of a poetic character: "The artist is that very rickshaw, who is dragging a vehicle with his reflections and doubts throughout the life. It is a hard burden and hard work. You have to run barefoot fast along the streets of a dusty city, because life is short. And to make that easier and more cheerful, the rickshaw is sings his quiet blues, welcoming us - passengers and fellow travelers".
