This book belongs to Vol. 53 No.3 of Contemporary Indian Art published by Marg Publications. This volume Contemporary Indian Art - Other Realities "provides a much-needed perspective on contemporary Indian art, offering a dynamic rather than a static way of approaching the subject. Instead of a mere chronicling of modes and elucidation of styles of art which are now well known, the essays, written by scholars, deal with questions which, though often asked, remain open-ended. Within the broad conceptual framework of each essay, the works of individual artists are discussed. ... The changing parameters of postmodernism and diasporic art are also dealt with." - Extract from the inner cover of the book.

Apart from the essays, Reflections from various sources and index are included.

The Archive also holds a Reprint Edition of the title published in 2008 that consists of a different cover page.
