Statement from the Annual Exhibition Committee

“The year 2020 has coerced all of us to retrospect upon our existence. Even in the darkest of times, we as visual practitioners found the silver lining in our creative pursuits. We have risen again like a Phoenix. As we all sat far-away from the campus under unsure circumstances, the possibility of holding the exhibition looked too bleak even few months back. We are glad that even under several financial and administrative challenges we are able to keep the wheel spinning, continuing with the legacy of Parampara.” – Prof. Soma Das, Prof. Deep Gobinda Chowdhury, Dr. Bikas Karmakar, Dr. Soujit Das (Faculty Coordinators)

Our Honorable Principal Message

The closing of the Students Annual Exhibition “Parampara”, on the 156th year of this institution, is marked with the achievement of the first online show ever held in its history. Year marking the pandemic, this is a new beginning.
I am sure this exhibition has given rise to as much enthusiasm amongst the student community as it has received appreciation from the audience.

My sincere thanks to each one of the students, teacher’s and staff who have contributed in this painstaking effort of making this virtual exhibition possible; not only keeping the show going, but by achieving new heights of professionalism in these neo-normal circumstances. This is proven by the whopping numbers of over fifteen thousand views clocked world over within the short life of the exhibition.

Optimistic and hopeful of overcoming the ongoing hurdles and achieving greater heights in the times to come, my best wishes to one and all.
