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.

All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
