> DESCRIPTION

Be swept up into the swirl and sparkling color of India's public realm, while relishing rare access to its private lives and legends. You'll gain rich insight into the dynamics shaping today's Indian psyche, from Bollywood blockbusters to rampant technology to caste conflicts.

This groundbreaking exhibition highlights the contemporary work of 28 Indian photographers and video artists, who reveal their highly personal views of the world's largest democracy. The artistic vitality arising from India's extreme economic and political shifts, pervasive media influence, and cultural traditions being upended by globalization will force you to see India in a fresh, startling new light.
