  • Ask tradition what it is, and it might give you the old courtesan’s reply: I am whatever you want me to be. In this talk, Kavita Singh will examine the ways in which contemporary culture has determined what it wants to inherit from the past, shaping its legacies in ways that are useful and relevant to the present. She will focus on the interface of contemporary South Asian artists with traditional miniature painting and will contrast the fate of miniature painting in India and Pakistan in the decades after Independence.
