    Modernism in South Asian Muslim Art

    Introduction This book traces the emergence of modernism by artists associated with “Pakistan” since the early twentieth century, but it is not a broad history of national art, nor does it seek to offer a complete an account of the selected artists considered here. It traces one influential genealogical trajectory—the emergence of artistic subjectivity in relation to a constellation of conceptual frameworks, nationalism, modernism, cosmopolitanism, and “tradition.” Although artists contributed to national life by forming new institutional frameworks for the patronage, exhibition, and reception of modern art—labour that is an inextricable aspect of their personae—the addressee of their art cannot be simply equated with Pakistani nationhood marked by aporias and…

In reality, anything in the subject can be attributed to the object. Everything in it is not an object, “is” it opens semantically.

    History of Art Timeline Introduction  What is Art? The emergence of Art is unknown similar to how language came into being. If  Art encompasses activities that have taken place since forever such as Architecture, painting, and sculpture, then not a single civilization has been devoid of Art. On the contrary, if Art is considered to be a luxurious entity or a prized belonging that deserves a place in museums or galleries, then it’s pretty obvious that it is a recent development and that the greatest polymaths and producers of the past never fantasized about it. This can be best perceived if seen from the architectural lens. Despite the fact that…
