Work on paper from the exhibit.

ATHENS, GA.- The Georgia Museum of Art presents the exhibit Modern Indian Works on Paper through October 8, 2006. Since its independence in 1947, India has been the site of a rich and complex contemporary art scene. From M.F. Husain to Anish Kapoor, Indian artists also have emerged as international figures in the last few decades. At times drawing upon their long established cultural heritage, at other times looking forward to groundbreaking techniques, they have extended modernism beyond the western world. This exhibition includes 50 works, in the media of watercolor, acrylic, pen and ink, pencil and gouache, as well as prints, produced by Indian artists since 1947.

Jitish Kallat (b.1974) has had 14 solo shows at Gallery Chemould (Mumbai), Nature Morte (New Delhi), Walsh Gallery (Chicago), Bodhi Art (Singapore), Bose Pacia Modern (New York) amongst others. The artist lives and works in Mumbai. He also writes frequently on the subject of contemporary art.

Reena Kallat (b. 1973) has had seven solo exhibitions at Bohdi Art Gallery (Mumbai and Singapore), Nature Morte (New Delhi), Gallery Chemould (Mumbai), Sakshi Gallery (Bangalore), Chicago Radio (Mumbai), Art Inc. Gallery (New Delhi) and Pundole Art Gallery (Mumbai). The artist lives and works in Mumbai.

Modern Indian Works on Paper has been organized by the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum, Rutgers University. This exhibition largely results from the generosity of lenders Umesh and Sunanda Gaur.
