Contemporary Indian Art:
Re-Interpreting Traditions from Post-Colonial Art
to the Vibrancy of Today

Hanuman Kambli
Goa College of Art, India

Global Education Visiting Scholar Hanuman Kambli is one of India's foremost printmakers, whose works address his personal experiences of Indian mythology and philosophy.  A professor of art at the Goa College of Art, he has a growing international reputation, and his works have been exhibited in major centers in India and throughout the world.  Formerly a Fulbright Scholar at the Western Michigan University, an Artist in Residence at the Wimbledon School of Art, Lincoln University- England, and at the Central TAFE, Western Australia, he is currently a Visiting Scholar teaching in MSU’s Art and Design Department for the Spring 2009 semester. In his own work, Kambli examines the contemporary tension between nature and culture, and the perennial contradictions of perception and reality. He will discuss how contemporary Indian art has evolved in the 20th and 21st centuries, from the immediate post-colonial period to the current vibrant art scene.

The Tea and Talk series is a roundtable forum for presentations by visiting international scholars. After the presentation, there is a question-and-answer session with open discussion of the topic.
