    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…
