They have been called the "schoolmasters of
Europe". For decades, if not centuries, this
religious Order has played a key role in exchanging
information, about science and plants, between
India and Europe. At times, they were
conservatives, and at other times, they've been
almost radical. The Jesuits -- or Society of Jesus
-- has also played a crucial, though sometimes
challenged and critiqued, role in Goa as well.

Xavier Centre for Historical Research and Goa Heritage Action Group jointly hosted Beyond the Horizon, an exhibition of recent works by Clarice Vaz. Clarice’s works have found a special place in the hearts of the Goans over the past years in which she has exhibited. This exhibition was held at the Xavier Centre for Historical Research, Porvorim, Goa from January 23 to January 26, 2020.
In the words of Curator Lina Vincent, “In her new series of paintings, Clarice Vaz continues her investigation of life’s deepest philosophies and the mysteries of existence. Her journey as an artist has been as much connected to intuitive explorations as the mastering of skills. A painter, activist, writer and multidisciplinary practitioner, she imbues her work with a sense of innate strength and visual harmony – and an experiential silence that rises above the chaos of mundane life. She responds to the external environment she finds herself in, as well as to internal experiences, and finds different ways to translate these into visual manifestations. Her work contains layers, figuratively and conceptually, and she invites viewers to probe deeper and extract their own answers.

It was a wonderful and a unique experience for the kids and one which they will never forget for the rest of their lives.
