Melbourne Art Fair 2012 Lecture and Forums: The Vernacular Contemporary: Annapurna Garimella
Annapurna Garimella
 Director of Jackfruit Research and Design | Melbourne Art FaIr Lectures and Forums curated by Helen Hughes

Abstract:
 Contemporary vernacular art in India includes craft, folk, tribal, ritual, temple, classical, domestic, self-taught and sometimes popular art forms and practices. This umbrella category sees and produces a collaborative and conflictual relationship between these various art forms and also acknowledges the inherent diversity of the vernacular art sphere, while also positioning them in a critical, questioning relationship with the prevalent idea of the contemporary. Garimella will discuss these issues through the history of exhibitions and specific curatorial practices in modern, post-Independence India and conclude by thinking about how contemporary vernacular and Anglophone artists engage with the idea of the vernacular.
