More good India art news: Works of one of the most significant artists to emerge in post-Independence India, Nasreen Mohamedi (1937–1990) can be seen at The Met Breuer in New York. Nasreen has created a body of work that demonstrates a singular and sustained engagement with abstraction. Her minimalist practice not only adds a rich layer to the history of South Asian art but also necessitates an expansion of the narratives of international modernism. The Met Breuer exhibition, the first museum retrospective of the artist's work in the United States, is an important part of the Met's initiative to explore and present the global scope of modern and contemporary art. The exhibition was open on 18 March and will close on 5 June.
