By the middle of 1980s, contemporary Indian art began to chart a new direction. The discourses that dominated the art scene of earlier decades slowly faded away. The younger generation of artists engaged themselves with new concerns. They explored fresh concepts (and the concept acquired preeminence, so that the artist’s idea became germane to the work leaving him free to commission helpers to complete the project). Post-modern ideas left their mark. They experimented with new media, material and techniques, they rethought the scale of the work attempting site-specific three-dimensional installations and they were prepared to negotiate with both global and local stimuli. Themes involving gender, environment and urban crisis began to surface in images. The vibrancy of popular culture worked as a major trigger in image-making. Some of the younger artists, even when they were working with representational forms eschewed narrative elements even as they gave vent to whimsy. In sum, contemporary art tore through the silken veils of the exclusive private gallery ambience and donned an assertive dynamism, a colourful vitality.
