Art South Asia: The first international programme of visual culture from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan & Sri Lanka
Library Shelf Location 15b.SSSH
Publication Date 2002
Description This illuminating and revealing publication is a distinctive and significant reflection of the arts, crafts and culture of South Asia. With lavish illustrations and scholarly essays by curators and artists from the sub-Continent together with views from host galleries here in England, it brings a much needed awareness of the diverse and rich, but as yet unacknowledged, present-day arts and crafts from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. This publication, often provocative, contains viewpoints not previously revealed in Western texts. Misrepresentations and reductionist viewpoints are challenged by both the essays and by the incisive and revealing nature of the works themselves which contain their own unique cultural and political discourse and critiques. [Art South Asia is an innovative collaboration between Gallery Oldham and Bangladesh, Manchester Art Gallery and India, Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Preston and Pakistan, and University of Liverpool Art Gallery and Sri Lanka.]
