Chitra Ganesh: Dreaming in Multiverse

Chitra Ganesh: Dreaming in Multiverse

Saturday, January 21, 2023 — Sunday, April 16, 2023
at Frost Art Museum Miami, USA

‘Chitra Ganesh draws on Buddhist and Hindu iconography, science fiction, queer theory, comics, Surrealism, Bollywood posters, and video games, to inform her illustrations and drawings. This exhibition presents a major wall installation, a series of recent prints, and several video animations that exemplify her practice of experimental storytelling. (…) The project notably centers women and queer relationships, reorienting traditional narratives around experiences and communities that have been marginalized or ignored throughout history and in the contemporary art world.’ – Frost Art Museum Miami

Curator: Meredith Malone, Ph.D., Kemper Art Museum, Washington University, Saint Louis.
