Distant Nearness

India is the new China. Or maybe China was the new India. Who can remember? But contemporary art has been consumed by China fever, so it was about time that someone local did a good exhibition of artists from the subcontinent instead. The three artists in Bruce Hartman's Distant Nearness last spring at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art mined India's complicated and multi-textured polarities. With giant sculptures of lasting images of India — stainless-steel kitchen utensils, scooters, bicycles — and intricate installations that seemed to suggest the country's chaotic and changeable nature, the exhibition cleverly suggested the variety of visual expression emerging from India and that neither people nor countries are monolithic.
