The Exotic World of Bombay Art Deco

Thursday, February 19th, 2009 | 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Heritage Vancouver and the Canadian Art Deco Society welcome another international expert on Art Deco to continue our series of talks and events leading up to the Tenth World Art Deco Congress in Montreal in May 2009.

Join us for "The Exotic World of Bombay Art Deco" presented for the first time in Canada by author Navin Ramani, the author of the book Bombay Art Deco Architecture, A Visual Journey 1930-1953.

Bombay contains a treasury of commercial, residential and public Art Deco architecture created during the glamorous and optimistic era of the 1930s and 1940s. This first generation of modern Indian architects, influenced by current fashionable trends, were eager to imbue the city with a new modern image. Developing at the same time as the characteristic architecture of Miami Beach, the two cities exhibit similar scale, geometry, tropical vocabulary and love of romance. This lecture will be an insightful exploration of the beauty and abundance of the previously unrecognized Art Deco heritage of Bombay.

Don’t miss this unique exploration of the Art Deco legacy of one of the world’s greatest cities!

Please note that copies of Bombay Art Deco Architecture, A Visual Journey 1930-1953 will be available for sale at the event.
