The Creative Circuit is a phrase coined by the Indian artist and writer K.G. Subramanyan, referring to the wide spectrum of influences open to contemporary Indian artists. It has also been used to describe the passage that contemporary Indian art takes when it is transferred from its original context in the Indian subcontinent and introduced to audiences in the West.
This panel discussion was held at the Victoria and Albert Museum on 3 November 2000 and examined both practical and theoretical implications of the complex process of transition.

Chaired by Farrukh Dhondy; Grant Watson, Suman Gopinath; Nima Poovaya-Smith and Sadie Murdoch discussed the issues.
