As a sequel to the public lecture on Saturday, 14 March 2015, Dr. Kathleen Wyma will guide us on a tour of the contemporary Indian art exhibited at the Art Basel in Hong Kong 2015.
Dr. Kathleen Wyma is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Fine Arts at The University of Hong Kong. Her research focuses on post-1945 Indian art, with a special interest in issues of post-colonialism and the impact of intercultural exchange in an increasing globalized art world. She has published numerous articles, and exhibition catalogues, as well as curated a number of contemporary art exhibitions in India. Her forthcoming article, “Counter Praxis: The Indian Radical Painters and Sculptors Association” focuses upon a Kerala-based artistic collective who, through a series of exhibitions and interventions, raised questions about the theoretical and political assumptions of Indian contemporary art as it developed throughout the 1980s.
