Regarding India is series of video interviews with contemporary artists living and working in India. Initiated through a Fulbright Fellowship in 2011, the videos were created to contribute to Myers’s University of Connecticut course on Indian art. Reflective of a dynamic and diverse contemporary art scene during a decade of unprecedented and often volatile change, the interviews engage with aspects of Indian history, society, culture and current events through the creative work, experiences, and insights of artists. The series is ongoing and will eventually include over sixty interviews.
Regarding India has been produced, directed and edited by Kathryn Myers.
Support has come from the Fulbright-Nehru Foundation, The Connecticut Office of the Art, and the University of Connecticut. The edited videos and original footage are housed at the American Institute of India Studies Art and Archeology Center in Gurgaon, India.
