    Opening Day: Midnight to the Boom: Painting in India after Independence

    Between independence from Britain in 1947 and the economic boom of the 1990s, a revolutionary art movement in India took form. Mindful of Western modernism's universal premises, but free from its stylistic and cultural restrictions, three generations of artists engaged with and responded to art from around the world and across time, pursuing hybrid paths toward a broader vision of 20th-century art. All events made possible by the Lowell Institute
