The contemporary Indian art scene has been flourishing since the nineties, among others factors due to economic growth, social and cultural tensions, and new media and visual technologies.
At the same time, the Indian art scene has opened up in earnest to the global scene through exchanges, dialogue, travel, and collaborations across national boundaries.
The publication India: Art Now shows how some of the country's most interesting contemporary artists interpret existence in the intersection between the local and the global.
The book presents contributions by the museum's curators as well as leading Indian critics, scholars, writers, and artists, discussing new developments and artistic stances in contemporary Indian art and its impact on the global art scene.
