Stella Kramrisch as Curator: Calcutta 1922 – London 1940 – Philadelphia 1968
The Vienna-born Stella Kramrisch is being rediscovered today as an important historian and curator of Indian art.
As part of a larger series of events dedicated to recognizing Kramrisch’s work and legacy, this online roundtable gathered experts from around the world to discuss her wide-ranging activities as a curator working across cultures. It focused on three major landmarks of that career: the famous Bauhaus exhibition in Kolkata 1922, the 'Photographic Exhibition on Indian Art' at the Warburg Institute in 1940, and her 1968 exhibition 'Unknown India' at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, among others.
