Abby Grey and Indian Modernism: Selections from the NYU Art Collection, $40 or free ebook

In the wake of India’s independence from British rule in 1947, the country’s artists experimented with new approaches, forming its first modernist schools. During four trips to India from 1960 to 1968, Abby Weed Grey—founder of NYU’s Grey Art Gallery—set out to explore this burgeoning art scene. Abby Grey and Indian Modernism: Selections from the NYU Art Collection spotlights her pioneering collecting efforts, which resulted in a significant trove of post–Indian Independence art in the United States. Featuring 29 works alongside documentation of Mrs. Grey’s travels, the exhibition examines Indian modernism through the lens of her ardent engagement with India and its art. Curated by Susan Hapgood and Ranjit Hoskote,Abby Grey and Indian Modernism is accompanied by this illustrated publication.
