Description This completely revised and expanded edition presents a panorama of contemporary art in India and 31 artists. Included are guides to contemporary art scenes in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Following the rapid economic, social and cultural developments in India in recent years, Indian Highway is a timely presentation of the pioneering work being made in the country today. This group exhibition is a snapshot of a vibrant generation of artists working across a range of media. The theme of Indian Highway reflects the importance of the road in migration, as well a as referencing technlogy and the "information superhighway", which has been central to India's economic boom. A common thread throughout is the way in which these artists demonstrate an active political and social engagement, examining complex issues in an Indian society undergoing transition, which include enviromentalism, religious sectarianism, globalisation, gender, sexuality and class.
