COLLOQUIUM - Sonal Khullar, "Amphibian Journeys: Art, Event, and Environment in India"

Focusing on projects in northeastern India, this paper considers a turn to site-specific, socially engaged, and collaborative artistic practices in South Asia over the past two decades. Contemporary artists have adopted the role of fieldworkers, moving between sites over an extended period to critique modernist and capitalist systems. Through new languages of art and forms of relation, their practice challenges structures of the art world and enacts a critical regionalism.
