Contemporary Indian Art

About

India is the world's largest democracy, home to a "transitional society" that by many accounts is the most diverse on earth. Contemporary Indian art matches the cultural and idealogical diversity of the nation, and thanks to rapid globalization is becoming increasingly visible in the international art world. Subodh Gupta's often-monumental installations link the realities of life in northern India with the broader forces of urbanization and globalization, while Zarina makes intimate works on paper that engage with the violent partition of India and Pakistan, as well as her own dislocation from home.
