In this interview Assistant Curator Beth Citron speaks with artist Hasan Elahi about how his fascination with surveillance relates to the theme of landscape in this exhibition.
Radical Terrain, the third exhibition in the series Modernist Art from India, highlights the exploration of landscape in Indian art for the generation after independence. The exhibition will also feature new work by international contemporary artists of diverse backgrounds currently working in and identifying with landscape. This is both a response to the modernist paintings on view and to work towards a nuanced conceptual understanding of what “landscape” in art is.
Radical Terrain is currently on view at the Rubin Museum of Art, in New York, through April 2013.
