    Remarks: Timothy Hyman looks at the Indian art scenario of the early 1980s to come up with a critical overview. He has selected five artists: K.G. Subramanyan, Paritosh Sen, Bhupen Khakhar, Jogen Chowdhury, and Sudhir Patwardhan – who were not invited to show their works in the Triennale, organized by the Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi, but through whose works he has attempted to come up with an understanding of modern Indian art of the 80s that he felt have evolved as a result of synthesis of indigenous western visual cultures. He also discusses the problems of such synthesis.
