EXHIBITION BACKGROUND:
Gallery Soulflower is very pleased to announce the launch of the monograph Here There Now: Contemporary Art from India in conjunction with an exhibition of the same title. Brian Curtin is the author of the monograph and curator of the exhibition.

Here There Now celebrates contemporary art from India. Central to this monograph and exhibition is the recognition that the work of these artists constitutes a necessary aspect of what the ‘contemporary’ means. These artists actively contribute to the international significance of contemporary art practices. All the more so because of their individual histories culturally nuanced understandings and particular uses of different media. Within global terms the critical ambition to offer strict definitions of how art functions for the contemporary context is all but obsolete. Moreover attempts to theorize the relationship of non-Western artists to occidental ‘others’ can appear misguided in view of trans-national movement and exchange. Here There Now celebrates these insights highlighting the value of departures as well as connections and dissonance as well as correspondence across the breadth of contemporary Indian art and beyond.
The artists featured are Arunkumar HG Tushar Joag Vineet Kacker Pushpamala N Justin Ponmany Prajakta Potnis Sharmila Samant Gigi Scaria Mithu Sen and Kumar Kanti Sen.
