Lalit Kala Akademi
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

In an effort towards highlighting the contribution of women in Indian art, Lalit Kala Akademi organized an exhibition titled 'Stree Drishti: Women Engravers from India' at the Museum of Arts, University of Guadalajara, Mexico from 29th November 2019 to 9th February 2020. It was held in collaboration with the National Book Trust, Delhi. 51 Contemporary Female Printmakers of India had been chosen by the Lalit Kala Akademi to represent the diversity of Indian art in this show.
The term "Stree Drishti" translates to 'vision of women' in Hindi and other Indian languages. The exhibition comprised of 51 medium-size
prints, which encompassed virtually all the contemporary printmaking techniques. Most of the works exhibited in Stree Drishti were done by etching ( in addition to silkscreen, wood and linoleum prints, dry point, embossing aquatint and others). The exhibition boosted the soft power of India on a global platform and brought the skills of women artists of India to limelight.
