In this issue
Arts Illustrated turns five, and so, the theme for this anniversary issue is simply the number ‘5’. What are the different, quirky, literal, unpredictable, far-fetched, believable ways in which this number of balance can be interpreted? How far is it going to take us; and, more importantly, how delightfully fun is the process going to be?
In the past five years, we have looked at various themes and met artists who gave us surprising perspectives, but one common thread that bound them all together was that we kept the themes relevant to the reality of our times, and that’s how we defined the ‘contemporary’ in the art. With ‘5’, too, no matter how we choose to interpret it, it will continue to deeply question, engage and deliberate over the things that shape our world.
A Beast, A God, And A Line
Famous French historian Marc Bloch’s 1949 book The Historian’s Craft begins with a simple yet poignant phrase: ‘Tell me Daddy. What is the use of history?’ Years later, Serge Gruzinski, another French historian, chose to contemplate the same question in his 2015 book L’histoire, pour quoi faire? While Bloch discussed what constitutes history and how it should be configured, Gruzinski took the discourse a bit further and incorporated it within contemporary narratives.

Art Is All I See
At Dr. Pradeep Chowbey’s four-storey house, there is art in every nook and corner. A laparoscopic surgeon by profession and Chairman of Max Institute of Minimal Access, Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery, Dr. Chowbey says he has a heightened visual awareness. With some of the most significant works of Indian modern masters like M. F. Husain, S. H. Raza and Ram Kumar adorning their walls, I met Dr. Chowbey and his wife Susmita over a cup of coffee at their beautiful South Delhi home
