About the Journal

The Chitrolekha Journal on Art and Design is a scholarly platform for discussions on the evolution and intercategorial development of art and design. The journal explores arts both as a mode of signaling as well as being in an ontological sense. The mystery of the first arts of our ancestors intrigues us today, from a scientific as much as an aesthetic perspective. Similarly the future of arts leads us to think of things quite unknown to us. The scope of the journal therefore, will be open-ended so as to be able to incorporate and address emerging areas in human arts and sciences. The broad areas of representation are:

  • History and Prehistory of Art
  • Visual Studies
  • Performance Arts
  • Intersections
  • Art and Religion
  • Art and Technology
  • Design and Culture
  • Art, Ecology, Environment
  • Contemporary Art
  • Textiles, Fashion, Perishable Arts
  • Handicrafts and Heritage Preservation

ANNOUNCEMENT

The Chitrolekha Magazine is being converted into a full-fledged scholarly journal soon. So, we close this series of publication that had started in 2011. We will not accept any submission of article till further announcement. All the contents of the previous series will remain in archived and retrievable condition. Please wait for the new journal in new avatar. We sincerely thank all the readers, authors, editors, support staff and well-wishers. We started the magazine with the special aim of promoting the art and craft of Bengal. But unfortunately, we did not get appropriate responses from the people who are in charge of arts and crafts. We will start a new journey with new editorial staff and system and focus. So good-bye from the old team. Best wishes for all of you...
