Past Exhibition

Exploding the Lotus

Feb. 29-May 25
Opening Reception: Feb. 28; 6-9 pm

Co-curated by Jaishri Abichandani and Jane Hart

This show presents a selection of South Asian artists whose work upends traditional cultural, spiritual, and political facets of their national origin disrupting surfaces, images, social spaces, and hegemonic culture. As this global hot-spot merges into mainstream Western Culture, methods of expression are re-examined, honored, and scrutinized, addressing fundamental issues of the region including war, feminism, and the endurance of spiritual practices-all issues at the forefront of South Asian contemporary life and culture.

The exhibition will include work in a variety of media from painting, works on paper, installation, photography, video and sculpture.
