Contemporary Indian Art Explored in Video Conversations with Artists

The Regarding India project is a series of video interviews with Indian artists about their work conducted by Kathryn Myers, a painter and professor of art at the University of Connecticut.

Myers, whose research looks at the art and culture of India, started the project during a Fulbright Fellowship in 2011. Regarding India was inspired by interviews she watched when she was an art student, and was designed to contribute to a course she teaches on Indian art and popular culture. It is also meant to be a resource for anyone interested in contemporary Indian art.

Sixty artists have been interviewed so far, and as the videos are edited they will be uploaded on the Regarding India website.
