'The Dialogues Series explores the concerns, careers and contexts of some of India's most acclaimed artists. Each book in the series takes the form of an extended conversation between an individual artist and the authors, Ranjit Hoskote and Nancy Adajania, two of India's best known and most authoritative critics. The Dialogues Series provides sharply etched portraits of the artists and critically engaged accounts of their work. It sees each artist's journey in review, with its distinctive transitions, breakthroughs and evolutionary rhythms. The Dialogues Series also situates the imagination and lifeworld of the artists within larger art-historical genealogies, cultural narratives and political discussions, both Indian and global. The series aims to create a discursive space in which both enthusiasts and scholars can reflect on the arguments that art and criticism conduct with history. The series is founded on the belief that the history of art does not simply revolve around the personalities of individual artists or the trends of the day; it also records the vital historical and philosophical questions that are posed and played out on the contested terrain of art.'
