The 5th Jehangir Nicholson Memorial LectureA Convergence: Stumbling into "Baroda": Timothy Hyman
08 Jan 2020

In his lecture , Timothy Hyman shared his engagement with the narrative school of Baroda that emerged as a reaction to the imagery of the progressive artist movement in Mumbai. As a young artist and writer who had just arrived in Baroda, Hyman forged close bonds with many of the artists in the city and found himself caught up in a vividly contested debate that forty years later still resonates beyond India -  between the indigenous and the international; between the observed and the subjective; between formal abstraction and societal depiction; but also between painting and 'post painting' in its varied strategies.
