One of the most significant artists to emerge from post- Independence India, Nasreen Mohamedi (19371990) had a singular and sustained engagement with abstraction. This catalogue, first published by Reina Sofa on the occasion of the 2015 exhibition Nasreen Mohamedi in Madrid, accompanies the inaugural exhibition at The Met Breuer, the artist's first museum retrospective in the United States. In her work, Mohamedi drew upon twentieth-century global modernisms while also referencing the longer history of geometric abstraction and calligraphy in Islamic art. Bringing together new scholarship, this essential volume illustrates over 200 works spanning Mohamedi's entire career, including paintings, works on paper, photographs, and diaries. By exploring her work's conceptual complexity and visual subtlety, the book reveals this extraordinary artist's aesthetic approach and artistic evolution, situating her minimalist practice within the history of transnational modernism.

The exhibition Nasreen Mohamedi is organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofa, Madrid, with the collaboration of the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, New Delhi.
