Hi Yogi,

Didn't call Indian medical doctor yet, will do tonight.
This just came in from Canada - a recorded July 1997 digital art show in Vadodara by children. Do you know where Vadodara is? Looks like Mitra may have had 2 digital art shows in Calcutta (ask him to confirm to me but he has not emailed back yet), and Ankur will show first in Bombay in November. So where does that leave us, my friend? I am thinking we go for "first international digital art show", maybe in some other gallery from Ankur's. Maybe travelling show to Calcutta after showing in Bombay. Turns out Doctor's important Indian artist contact/friend lives in Bombay, so may get some news about that tonight if he calls home. The doctor's father also lives near Bombay, accessible by train.

Staying in touch,

Holy Cow!

There already was an Indian digital art exhibition in 1997, by children!
Actually, very appropriate for cyberart of the New Millenium.

God bless those kids!

I think we approach an international digital art show, the first for India or at least in Bombay or at least the lst international digital travelling show between Calcutta and Bombay. Galleries can be secured in both major cities.

Ansgard, can you join us and represent Canada?

Say mid-December 1999. We need you.

In meantime, please keep researching on the Web for any historic Indian digital art shows that I don't know about.

Team leader,
