The exhibition will seek to uncover a hidden narrative of transnational modernism in ceramics and glass within a national art history, which negotiates the modern with the indigenous or traditional through a vast and varied terrain of aesthetic production post-independence. Beginning with the reworking of stylistic forms from pan Asian or European influences of Oriental and Western aesthetics, designers and NGO’s working with craft drew selectively from a range of artistic and aesthetic legacies of craft and craftsmanship, iconographic and mythological sources. This quest characterizes an important facet of the development of a modern idiom of Indian contemporary ceramics and glass.
