Rumale Chennabasaviah (1910-1988) was a watercolour artist whose dedication to portraying the city of Bangalore, particularly its picturesque buildings and verdant flora, is renowned. Jackfruit was hired by the National Gallery of Modern Art, Bengaluru to work with independent curator K. S. Srinivasa Murthy to design the Rumale retrospective in 2011. Taking the collection held primarily by the Kabe family and a few Karnataka state institutions, Jackfruit’s task was to assist the curator to make the final selection of works for the exhibition, design a display that worked with his curatorial premise and create visual relationships between the works in the NGMA gallery to showcase Rumale’s way of looking at and painting his city. The show was extended twice due to popular demand. Jackfruit was assisted by Little River Architects in this project.
