New Narratives: Contemporary Art From India

Alan G. Artner declares in the Chicago Tribune: "This is a show so full of works embodying meaning that it makes the Western fondness for tacked on 'concepts' almost inexcusable. Thanks to the Department of Cultural Affairs for welcoming Betty Seid, a Chicago-based independent curator (with past ties to the Museum of Contemporary Art and Art Institute of Chicago), who wanted to explore uncharted territory." Artists include Jayashree Chakravarty, Sheba Chhachhi, Anju Dodiya, Atul Dodiya, Anita Dube, Shilpa Gupta, Subodh Gupta, N. S. Harsha, Tushar Joag, Ranbir Kaleka, Jitish Kallat, Reena Saini Kallat, Nalini Malani, Pushpamala N, Tejal Shah, Gulammohammed Sheikh, Valay Shende, Arpita Singh, Vivan Sundaram, Vasudha Thozhur and Hema Upadhyay.Read more.
