Kala Kaalam Lokam for Deshabhimani
MT’s Universe
M.T. Vasudevan Nair (‘MT’ to Malayalees) is a titan of the literature and social commentary scene in Kerala. A recipient of countless awards (we transported three truckfuls to the exhibition venue; we know) including the Padma Bhushan in 2005, the Jnanpith in 1995 and multiple National Film Awards, MT is the pride of a populace that adores the writer as much as his oeuvre. We were asked to curate and design an exhibition around his life and work for Deshabhimani, a popular daily. For over a month (and two sleepless nights), with help from friends and the newspaper- and gallery-staff, we planned and executed the event at the Lalithakala Akademy Art Gallery.
