Description

The journey from modern to contemporary art in India continues to be one from indigenous to global—intersecting with international art at increasingly frequent intervals as time progresses. Recent works by 24 artists have been selected to represent art-making in India today. By making “now” the curatorial priority, this book has a perspective that has been missing from most previous books and exhibitions of 20th-century art from India.

This book was published in conjunction with an extensive exhibition of paintings, photography, sculptures and installations, along with words in video and new media, that had opened at the Chicago Cultural Center in 2007, and later travelled to Kansas and New Brunswick, all in the United States. The endeavour involved extensive on-site research in India, New York and elsewhere to produce the first exhibition in the US to feature only works of the 21st century made in India, with several pieces that were created solely for that exhibition.
