Crossing Black Waters


Product Information

 Crossing Black Waters refers to Kala Pani, the black oceans surrounding the Indian Subcontinent. To cross them was to break with tradition, to break one's caste - literally to become an outcast.

Put together to accompany a major exhibition of the same name, this book looks at the work of 13 South Asian Artists - seven based in Britain, and sic in the Subcontinent. Through essays, interviews and photographs, it analyses the artists' handling of the colonial legacy and their attempts to extend and develop a contemporary cultural practice.

The artists are: Said Adrus, Anand Moy Banerji, Arpana Caur, Allen deSouza, Nina Edge, Sushanta Guha, Bhajan Hunjan, Manjeet Lamba, Shaheen Merali, Quddus Mirza, Anwar Saeed, Samena Rana and Sashidharan.
