Contemporary Art from India

Other primary creator Mapin Publishing


Full Description

Contemporary art in India reflects her world-recognition as a major player in the new millennium. 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. 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. Recent work by 24 artists has been selected to represent art-making in India today. This catalog is published in conjunction with an extensive exhibition of paintings, sculptures, and installations, along with works in video and new media that opens at the Chicago Cultural Center in July 2007. This endeavor has involved extensive on-site research in India, New York and elsewhere to produce the first exhibition in the United States to feature works of only the 21st century made in India, with several pieces being created solely for this exhibition.
