Art & Art History Research Lecture Series: Karin Zitzewitz  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Dr. Zitzewitz will present her research in a lecture titled, Forms of the Secular in Modern Indian Art. Since 1996, Hindu nationalist activists have publicly declared that the work of India's most prominent modernist painter, M.F. Husain, offends their religious sensibilities. The success of this campaign hinges on the association of modernist art with secularism. Examining Husain alongside two of his contemporaries, Zitzewitz shows the range of possible manifestations of the link between art and secularism in contemporary India.
