The digital art exhibition “The Pedagogical Clutch: Group Exhibition by the S N School Artists” Coordinated, Curated and Presented by Atiya Amjad, a Hyderabad-based curator, was part of the Hyderabad Literary Festival 2021.

The Pedagogical Clutch is a compilation of artworks produced by past and present students of Sarojini Naidu School of Fine Arts, University of Hyderabad. The exhibition reviews the role of art education in the making of the artists. The curatorial agenda is to understand the role of the SN School in nurturing and guiding the students. This show will examine the concepts, skills, styles, and ideologies adopted by the students. Although the students are traversing their individual trajectories, the School has played a huge role in moulding their thought processes, techniques, and articulations. Above all, this show is a tribute to the masters and students alike, who together weaved the history and legacy of the Sarojini Naidu School of Art and Communication.
