AMU faculty delivers lecture at FDP

Aligarh: “Conventional art education in India is being challenged by changing approaches in art expression in terms of technology, novelty of ideas, ideology and school of thoughts, emerging in art practices outside the art institutions and this needs to be addressed by revising curricula and shifting focus on employability and professionalism along with the academic excellence”, said Professor Badar Jahan, Department of Fine Arts, Aligarh Muslim University, while delivering a lecture on “Changing approaches in art expression- A challenge for the Art Institutions in India”.

She spoke at a faculty development programme on “New Challenges and Possibilities in the Field of Art” held online by the Faculty Development Centre (PMMMNTT), Ministry of Education, Government of India, in collaboration with the Department of Fine Arts, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra.

Professor Jahan said that the traditional Indian art has much more to offer and the important thing is the approach towards its ethos and applying it in contemporary environment. She stressed that Indian artists and art students have immense potential for creative responses to their environment and what is actually needed is proper guidance to them.
