Experience the Exhibits Virtually
Exhibitions are important tools to educate and create awareness regarding the research. They were also useful to engage with the vernacular furniture and objects from a museological perspective. Various exhibitions conducted as part of the project are available to view here.
Itiha – Stories and Traditions of Vernacular Furniture
Vernacular furniture is used in the everyday life of people of a particular region or community and is made by craftspeople using locally available materials. ‘Itiha: stories and traditions of vernacular furniture’ is an exhibition that focuses on the six-year-long journey about the research on vernacular furniture of north-west India, and highlights aspects of design, function, making, as well as associated stories and narratives that signify its relevance in a given context. The exhibition is an outcome of the ‘Vernacular Furniture of North-West India’ project, which is the first-ever research on vernacular furniture.
