Across genres including documentary, portraiture and landscape, Fòcas India: Document reveals universal and unexpected stories from India and Scotland.
As part of An Lanntair’s Purvai Festival, Fòcas will be showcasing the works of thirty artists from India and Scotland who were shortlisted through the Fòcas India: Document open call.
The exhibition, which runs until 29 September 2017, is part of the Purvia festival’s packed ten-day programme of events running from 10th to 19th August.
Purvai is inspired by the story of Colin Mackenzie, who was born in Stornoway in 1754, and celebrates the Hebrides’ South Asian heritage links.
Almost two centuries after his death, the first ever exhibition of Mackenzie’s unique collection of South Asian art and antiquities opens on 12th August at Museum nan Eilean, Lews Castle, on the Isle of Lewis, featuring thousands of unusual items from the world-famous Mackenzie Collection.
