Group 1890: India’s Indigenous Modernism

A great number of short lived but nonetheless significant art movements arose in Indian art over the twentieth century as Indian artists struggled with evolving or arriving at their identity as modern artists and the visual language of Indian modernism. One of the most significant among these is the artist collective, Group 1890, formed in 1962 with twelve young artists, led by the artist and critic, J. Swaminathan. The exhibition traces the importance of these artists, through their individual art practice, and the position they advocated as a group in 1963 when they issued a group manifesto. DAG Modern’s exhibition is the first to bring the work of these twelve artists under one roof, under the rubric of Group 1890, and examines their historical significance.
