South Asian Contemporary Art at Christie’s – Changing Gears

The June 2009 auction of South Asian Modern and Contemporary Art at Christie’s London, now in its tenth year, showcased works of an increasing number of young names in contemporary art. Many among them share the environmental and ethical concerns of a new generation. They are moving away from conservatism and inventing fresh and innovative language. Their spirit is unorthodox, and their work not necessarily lyrical. Subodh Gupta is perhaps one of India's best known contemporary artists – as much a household name as the everyday utensils he uses in his creations. But there are others – and their work has international resonance.
