Beyond Frontiers marks the first ever attempt to survey the work of contemporary British artists whose ancestral roots lie in the countries and cultures of South Asia. For some, their links with the Subcontinent remain present and immediate; for others, they are a barely perceptible trace, filtered through generations of exile and migration. Beyond Frontiers marks the first ever attempt to survey the work of contemporary British artists whose ancestral roots lie in the countries and cultures of South Asia. For some, their links with the Subcontinent remain present and immediate; for others, they are a barely perceptible trace, filtered through generations of exile and migration Always lively, often provocative and lavishly illustrated, the book contains a heady mix of scholarly essays, interviews, artists' texts and specially commissioned works. It aims, once and for all, to unsettle pat assumptions about the meaning and significance of ethnic origin to artists' contribution to contemporary culture and experience. There are as many different voices here, as many different approaches to art and culture as there are contributions to the book Artists of three generations join eminent critics, cultural theorists and art historians to explore visual art now, against a backdrop of the centuries-old intertwining of East and West that informs many of the most vibrant manifestations of British and European contemporary culture
