Among the featured artists are seasoned artists like Arpana Caur, Brinda Miller, Jayashri Burman, Kanchan Chander, Madhvi Parekh, Radha Gomaty, Sangeeta Gupta, Seema Kohli, Shantamani, Sobha Broota, and Sujata Bajaj, as well as emerging stars such as Charuvi Aggarwal, Keerti Puja, Nivedita Mishra, Puja Mondal, Richa Navani, Saadiya Kochar, and Sonal Varshneya, offering a dynamic perspective on India’s artistry. In this, the artworks, filtered through an inclusive feminine gaze, reflect the artists’ own and their associates’ struggles, triumphs, dreams, desires, and ambitions.

It also highlights several important embroidery traditions, such as Chamba Rumal from Himachal Pradesh, Kantha from West Bengal, Rabari from Kutch, Sujani and Katwa from Bihar, and Pashmina from Kashmir.
