Many Visions, Many Versions: Art from Indigenous Communities in India continues through Sunday (March 25) at the Surrey Art Gallery. 
SURREY, Canada---For those in Canada who might not know that India has its share of the Fourth World, an art exhibition in Surrey is worth visiting. Curated by Aurogeeta Das and David Szanton, "Many Visions, Many Versions: Art from Indigenous Communities in India" is at the Surrey Art Gallery until Sunday (March 25). The work reflects not only the diversity of India, but also the diversity within Indigenous communities in that country. Widely known as Adivasis, they make up less than nine percent of the Indian population, and are scattered in different states in the Hindu-dominated nation. [More]
