Vriksha was an exhibition on the Thomas Wardle & John Forbes Watson Textile Sample Volumes & William Roxburg Botanical Drawings Collection of the Botanical Survey of India, Kolkata.

Our role

We selected and identified the relevant albums from the Botanical Survey collection, and identified images to be reproduced for the exhibition. Eka was also responsible for concepts, curation, exhibition design and display, relevant research, and textual references. The exhibition was a part of the ‘Raksha’ conference organised by SUTRA, a Kolkata-based NGO focussing on Indian textiles.
