Art Alive Gallery presents a new series, called Contemporary Idioms that focuses at the young talent emerging out of Contemporary Art scene in India. The first edition ‘What is Contemporary…’ looks at three artists who strive to present works that showcase the shifting landscape of contemporary art in India. It will be an annual exhibition, the first edition of the series features showcasing works of young artists Suman Chandra, Divya Singh, Purvai Rai. These artists are exhibiting at a major platform for the first time, whose works define the cusp of the contemporary, with regard to aesthetic, conceptual and political concerns. This year, the focus is on artists who have been instrumenting media and material in non-traditional ways towards conceptual ends. Their works are particularly significant for the close affinity as their process maintains with the subject of their works. From a diverse range of concerns including socio-political, spiritual and personal preoccupations, the artists provide a glimpse into what is contemporary in Indian art today.
