When was Modernism: Essays on Contemporary Cultural Practice in India
When was Modernism: Essays on Contemporary Cultural Practice in India
Description
About the Book:

A commitment to modernity is the underlying theme of this Volume. Through essays that are interpretive and theoretical the author seeks to situate the modern in contemporary cultural practice. She sets up an ideological vantage point to view modernism along it multiple tracks in India and the third world.

The essays divide in to three sections. The first two sections, Artist and Art work and Film, Narratives, raise Questions of authorship, genre and contemporary features of national culture that materialize into an aesthetic in the Indian context. The last section, frames of Reference, formalizes the polemical options developed across the book. The essays here propose resistance to the depoliticization of narratives, and affirm an open-ended engagement with the avantgarde. They explore the possibility of art practice finding its own signifying space that is still a space for radical transformation.

Her extensive publications on modern Indian art include the book Contemporary Indian artists, exhibition catalogues andf monographs on artists. She is currently writing a monograph on tyeb Mehta.

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
