The Contemporary Sultanate

When one is in a situation where they cannot express themselves freely, the voice of artists becomes much stronger than an individual. Artists have over the centuries dissolved all boundaries when addressing global issues of politics, marginalisation, economy, security and religious differences, while reacting to their immediate surroundings and situations. In Hindustan too, there was an amalgamation of culture and mingling of identities of the invaders with the locals through art practices. The efforts of artists drawn from diverse regions and brought up in different traditions could be coordinated to achieve an overall homogeneity, in which various elements were harmoniously linked. Contemporary artists have been path-breakers in the use of medium, concepts and the meaning and representation of art. These artists show the world as it is – through a contemporary, constructed and artistic language of representation. Though contemporary artists draw their inspiration from various aspects – contemporary or historic, they are all rooted in a certain aesthetic of the past. Contemporary art today is heavily underlined and visualised within a social, political, cultural, economic or historic meaning affiliated with a personal undertone.
