Book Description

Three seminal exhibitions at Serendipity Arts Festival explore trajectories of identity and vocation rituals of devotion and belonging and evolving forms of consumption of sacral objects material conventions and social practices. The essays in this volume present a revisionist reading of ''pure'' culture from the vantage point of confluence and syncretism; a look at objects of ''craft'' that are inextricably linked to the ecology of their origin and to the livelihoods of their makers; and a comprehensive history of the ''charpai'' in social usage and popular imagination that enquires into its economic status in a global market.
