Contemporary South Asian Art: Women Making History

Rebecca Brown, professor and director of graduate studies, history of art and chair of advanced academic programs in museum studies and cultural heritage management, Johns Hopkins University

Dayanita Singh, Rina Banerjee, Anita Dube, Annu Matthew, Seher Shah, Bharti Kher, Naiza Khan, Jayashree Chakravarty, Dilara Begum Jolly. These artists are grappling with questions ranging from the plight of garment workers in Bangladesh to the degradation of the environment to the little known history of Indian soldiers in Italy during World War II. They have shown in and organized major international biennials, and we can finally see them with more regularity in museums here in the US, from the Museum of Modern Art and the MET to smaller gallery settings across the eastern seaboard and beyond. This talk introduces us to some of the leading women artists of the last two decades who have deep connections to India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan whose work speaks broadly to a global audience.
