Mediating the durational limits of historical progression the essays in this volume provide new ways to imagine how art occupies time. How does a residency frame the personal histories of each participant and how does an exhibition distil this into a representational format? Is art-writing coterminous or consequent to the creation of art? How do artists inhabiting the interregnum comprehend the porous amorphous histories of a region? This volume is a guide to emerging practices in Indian contemporary art.
