    In the resurgent international interest in Indian art, mid-career and young artists play a significant role. As the fourth generation since Independence, they contribute significantly to an expanded cultural dialectic, and a problematization of aspects of social polity through a quest for a vigorous contemporary language. This is the first generation of artists that consciously works under the glare of international circuits and critical evaluation. Several artists featured in this volume stand out for their ability to engage with a spectrum of media, moving easily from video and performance to painting and sculptural installation. Collectively these essays present leading art practices currently emanating from India.
