Four American artists — Carrie Fonder, Rebecca Layton, Jenny Mullins and Lily Stockman — came to India during 2010-11 as Fulbright-Nehru scholars. Conscious of the cultures of the two countries, at times, they engaged with them, and tried to dodge them as well. The result, curated by Georgina Maddox, is a varied show titled ‘Super/Power’.
