Artist Chittaprosad’s retrospective will travel out of the country for the first time to DAG’s gallery in New York, coinciding with Asia Art Week in March 2018. Chittaprosad (1915-78) is best known for documenting the horrific genocide in 1943-44 caused by a man made famine in Bengal when grains from India were feed the allied army stationed there. Asked by the Communist Party of India to travel in the famine-affected areas and document its outcome, Chittaprosad’s book, Hungry Bengal, on the subject, was seized and burnt. It is with this current exhibition that a facsimile edition of the original has been published for the first time since. The retrospective also looks at Chittaprosad’s political art as well as his printmaking
