Embark is an annual exhibition that coincides with the Degree Show at the Faculty of Fine Arts, MSU, and thereby provides an opportunity to concurrently view the works of two successive batches of graduates. Embark II features fifteen artists from the batch of 2016–18. The exhibition intentionally avoids a thematic binder for the artworks displayed. Instead, it assumes the form of a survey show to evaluate how traditional art techniques and new media simultaneously find accommodation in art making today. In its humble capacity, the exhibition also sheds light on the kind of practices the Faculty of Fine Arts has encouraged in the recent past. By way of a symbiotic existence in Baroda, Gallery Ark is invested in the academic and immediate social context of these young artists.
