Researched and designed by Habiba Insaf and Adhitya Dhanapal, the interactive walk covered a range of artists and their work beginning from the Mughal miniatures, moving towards the British realism and then to Indian artists like MF Pithawala, the Kalighat painters, Amrita Sher-Gil to the famous series of photographer Dayanita Singh . The discussion was not just around the paintings but also moved to sculptures and artworks by Meera Mukherjee, Mrinalini Mukherjee, and Navjot Altaf.
