Art and Practice is a series of programs that bring together emerging and experienced artists to explore the challenges and possibilities of sustaining a creative life.
Chitra Ganesh invites emerging artists to join her in exploring “shadow narratives,” histories that have been excluded or erased from the dominant culture. Each participant will be encouraged to bring something with them that they are thinking about in their own work. It could be an object—like a textile, piece of bark, or archival photograph—or a song, text, video clip, etc. The group will share and discuss these materials and use writing and drawing exercises to question and imagine their histories. There will be time to connect with each other in an intimate, online environment.
This program is for anyone who identifies as an artist and will take place over Zoom. This program is free, but an application form is required. To keep the conversation intimate, registration is limited and applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. For more information, please contact [email protected].
Chitra Ganesh is a Brooklyn-based visual artist whose work encompasses drawing, painting, comics, wall installations, video art, and more. Through studies in literature, semiotics, social theory, science fiction, and historical and mythic texts, Ganesh attempts to reconcile representations of femininity, sexuality, and power absent from the artistic and literary canons.
