New Delhi, A group of 16 artists showcase their collection in two days art exhibition Illumination curated by Kumar Vikas Saxena held on December 1 & 2, 2018 respectively (11:000 am to 5: 30 pm) at Stainless Art Gallery, Mathura Road, New Delhi.
Running strong since over a decade now, Empowerment is a non-profit organization run by Kumar Vikas Saxena (Visual Artist and Curator) since 2002 in the heart of Delhi. Using art as a medium to conglomerate the youth around the world, Empowerment strives towards creating a conducive society for the creative and impressionable minds. Not only does it thrive at the root of the fertile cultural soil of India, it also aims to sensitize global citizens by creating a symbiosis between the visionaries and the government. With this objective, Empowerment has conducted various programs showcasing visual arts, handicrafts and design aesthetics from around the world, each uniquely accented by their own fine distinctions of different civilizations. Empowerment has proudly orchestrated numerous art exhibitions and international art projects with reputed names like the ICCR, Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India, Lalit Kala Academy, Govt. of Uttrakhand, Women and Child Development Ministry, India-Sri Lanka Foundation, India-Bhutan Foundation, India-Afghanistan Foundation, Embassy of Germany, Culture Centre of Amravati and Vijayawada, among many others.
Another one of Empowerment’s brainchild is the Academy of Art and Design, which is a leading fine arts institute based in the capital city of India. It’s an increasingly dynamic platform which is enabling the emerging and youth Artist of the country in the field of fine arts and providing them with the international exposure which is soaring them to new heights.
We at Empowerment believe in making the world a better place with the power of art, and so we take immense pleasure and joy in announcing that this year’s art show “Illumination” is a tribute to the soldiers at the Central Reserve Police Force of India. Through this show, we hope to connect the younger generation with the CRPF in order to rightfully acknowledge their aids and services to the nation, and create more awareness regarding the same. Moreover, fifty percent of all auction proceedings will be donated by Empowerment to further the welfare of the CRPF as a token of our appreciation and gratitude.
