Foreword

The Indira Gandhi National Center for the Arts (IGNCA) since its inception has initiated multiple research programme in terms of assembling, documenting and interpreting arts and cultural both within the realm of text and the context. The academic structure of the IGNCA has been critically designed and framed to purse multi-disciplinary and integrated approach in documentation, research and dissemination of cultural materials.

Over the last 25 years IGNCA has systematically studies and cultural traditions of India. The outcome of this initiative could be seen in multiple dissemination modules in terms of seminars, conference, lectures, exhibitions, audio-visual & multimedia presentations, interactive dialogue and publications.

It may be mentioned here that several major collection and documentation projects have been undertaken by the IGNCA under the auspices of Loka Parampara and Khestra Sampada modules of the Janapada Division from the very beginning. The ethnographic collections based on field exploration and acquisition programmes systematically conducted in the North Eat from time to time resulted in a repertoire of valuable arts and crafts. These materials are now properly and scientifically stored and preserved in the Ethnographic Archives of the Division. The significance of this collection of ethnographic objects it enhanced in the light of socio-cultural changes that have occurred in the North East India of contemporary time.

Janapada Sampada Division had taken timely decision to make these cultural materials available to artists, scholars, students, teachers and others for research and publication by providing user-friendly data-base. However, there is an urgent need to bring out series to catalogues to facilitate the further studies and research in respect of tribal and folk arts in India. In this context it may be mentioned that the publication of catalogues should be based on meticulous documentation and research for dispensing authentic information to the individuals and institutions.

The present catalogue entitled-“Basketry: everyday Art of North East India” is a step forward towards fulfilling this academic need. In fact this catalogue supplements a number of beautifully illustrated catalogues already published by IGNCA while showcasing our ethnographic collection in the form of exhibition.

It would not be out of place to mention that the present catalogue on basketry will be followed by another one in respect of the textile tradition of the North East India. The publication of these catalogue will surely help to revive the endangered craft traditions of the region, which are gradually on the wane.
