The Generation of Change. New Indian Art exhibition at the Zachęta National Art Gallery confronts popular notions of India such as those viewers absorb from Bollywood movies with the reality, delivering an insightful analysis of contemporary Indian society and its problems.

Generation of Change. New Indian Art is the first such broad presentation of contemporary art from India in Central and Eastern Europe in a while. Some artists featured in the exhibition live and work in India while others live in the United States and Europe.

Almost two decades ago, India entered a path of tremendous economic and technological development which has radically changed the country’s social structure. Works shown at the Zachęta gallery have been carefully selected to highlight this rapid social and economic evolution.

The title of the exhibition is borrowed from a series of photographs which photographer Anay Mann took to portray his generation—young city dwellers trying to redefine themselves and find a place somewhere between tradition and history and the world of technology and increasing globalization.

The exhibition focuses on young artists, aiming to capture this generation’s state of mind. It features a wide variety of artists, problems and means of artistic expression and has been divided into several subjects such as tradition/ritual/costumes, the portrait, the city/change/architecture, society, science and technology in art, politics/identity/social activists and cultural relations between Poland and India. Alongside art photography with a flavor of social documentary, works shown at the exhibition range from paintings, drawings and sculptures to installations and video projects to comic books and embroidery.
