INDIA’S REGIONAL ARTISTS CONFRONTING THE CONTEMPORARY CANON

Replacement for Lecture 5 in The Arts of India series

At the present moment India’s indigenous and regional artists (often termed ‘Adivasi’ and ‘folk artists’) are forging a new place in contemporary platforms in India and around the world. Nagesh will present some of the historical precedents and challenges for these artists finding a place in the contemporary art mainstream, highlighting various experimental ventures exploring institutional conventions and the hierarchies applied to the idea of contemporary art. He will also examine the increase in collaborations between urban and regional artists as artists from inside and outside the contemporary canon see opportunities to develop new forms of art. The work of pioneering artists such as Jangarh Singh Shyam (1962-2001) will be included in the discussion, as well as the role Australia has played in this history.
