New Narratives: Contemporary Art from India

Untitled by Shilpa Gupta
Apr 12, 2008 - Jul 31, 2008
Voorhees Gallery

This exhibition is the first in the United States to include only very recent works of art that come directly from the studios of contemporary artists in India, as well as from private collections and galleries in the United States and India. Approximately 50 works by fifteen artists have been selected to represent art-making in India today. In addition to paintings and sculptures, a section is devoted to new media art, including installations and video. The title “New Narratives” refers to the continuation of narration as a connective thread that binds contemporary artists to the rich Indian tradition of storytelling.

The exhibition is presented jointly at the Zimmerli Art Museum and the galleries at the Mason Gross School of the Arts.
