In India, you are never far from a good story. It’s a land of epic stories and great storytellers. This vibrant exhibition full of colours, textures, sounds and smells brings India to the heart of Liverpool.  

Showcasing the art of seven Indian artists, ‘Telling tales’ explores their work and the stories they tell. From giant painted story scrolls to delicate line drawings, these works show how contemporary Indian artists portray news, current affairs and life in 21st  century India.   

Discover India’s celebrated Gods and Goddesses who have inspired generations of storytellers. From Ganesha the impulsive and generous elephant god, to Hanuman, who became the fearless, loyal and strong chief of the monkeys. Explore the fascinating Tree of Life and the significance of horses in Indian folklore.
