The choice of theme for this annual exhibition, kintsugi, is inspired by the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold or silver lacquer. This theme was wisely chosen for several reasons. It attests to the belief that imperfections and mistakes are an essential part of the creative process and should be accepted rather than concealed. In addition, the philosophy of Kintsugi, with its embrace and celebration of impermanence, is of great importance to students as they move into the professional art world. The visual appeal of the exhibition, with its delicate golden stitching and juxtaposition of old and new, conveys a sense of fascination and aesthetic opulence that captivates viewers and invites them to engage with the narratives woven into each artwork.

During the event, Prof. (Dr.) A. W. Santosh Kumar, Vice Chancellor of Amity University Mumbai, reflected on the significance of kintsugi, stating, “Kintsugi beautifully the basic principle of life where golden etching of broken pieces of porcelain adds more value than before. This treads the path of  the journey of final-year Fine Arts students, symbolizing their growth and transformation throughout their artistic endeavors.”

Chief of the event, Parag Tandel, emphasized the need for decolonization in the world of art. He stressed the importance of elevating local art and artifacts, asserting that by exploring one’s cultural heritage, individuals contribute to its global significance and grandeur.

It is an immersive experience that encourages exploration and fuels artistic exploration.
