Radical Terrain\, the third exhibition in the serie s Modernist Art from India\, highlights the exploration of landsca pe in Indian art for the generation after independence. The exhibition will also feature new work by international contemporary artists of diverse bac kgrounds currently working in and identifying with landscape. This is both a response to the modernist paintings on view and to work towards a nuanced conceptual understanding of what "landscape" in art is.

\n

The modernist paintings in the exhibition suggests that landscape became a recognizable form of expression in this period as a means for artists to c ome to terms with the vastness and diversity of India as a newly sovereign nation.   Explorations of landscape – especially rural landscapes-- by pain ters inadvertently paralleled official initiatives of government organizati ons like the Films Division of India\, which commissioned many films of rur al and distant regions like Orissa and Himachal Pradesh for a primary audie nce of citizens in urban centers. These activities reflect a country creati ng a new identity. Radical Terrain shows the great variety of land scapes created by artists in India after independence from British rule – i ncluding figural and abstract landscapes\, specific sites and conceptual la ndscapes painted in a wide range of styles and from many social\, political \, and formal perspectives.

\n

The contemporary interventio ns in the exhibition will be in various modes and media\, reflecting the di versity of what landscape means to contemporary artists of various backgrou nds. The artists include Lisi Raskin\, Marc Handelman\, Seher Shah\, Janain a Tschäpe\, and others.
