In the early 20th century, Indian artists viewed the village as the true locus for India's identity, but by mid-century, when India had gained independence, its cities were replenished with all kinds of people fulfilling their dreams. In the cities, the drive toward modernity co-existed with the enduring presence of the spiritual in unexpected ways. Explore paintings and images of confrontation, hope, fracture, and change traverse shifting grounds rich with contradictions.
