An exhibition of political cartoons (digital prints) focusing on Bengal of the 1950s to the 1970s which reflect the socio-political milieu of the times. Cartoonists in Bengal expressed critical visual narratives with a deep sense of social and political awareness. Despite the political turmoil, upheavals and differences of opinions, artists were free to work with cartoons, expressing their opinion through the visual language of drawings. On view are a selection of cartoons by Sailo Narayan Chakraborty, Debiprasad Roy Choudhury, Kutty, Chandi Lahiri, Rebati Bushan and Amal Chakraborty
