Visual Art of Northeast India: A Collection of Opus

Meghali Goswami (Author)

Collection of Opus is a book about the traditional and contemporary art practices in the region of north-eastern part of India. The sequence of the essays corresponds to different phases in the work of art of the Northeast India, and the book is informed throughout by a general interest in the conceptual and traditional relation of art and the visual language.

The essays range from a broad discussion of the traditional art practices; specially of Assam, through analysing about the folk art and illuminated manuscript of Assam. The book concentrates upon the regional development of art practices of Silchar and other parts of the region and focuses on the contribution of art institutions of that region.

The author’s aim is to treat the contemporary art practices of Northeast India as a subject of serious inquiry and to provide the readers with a range of changes and development in the art practices of some regions which are not being highlighted in the global scenario.
