On April 17, 2018, The Mittal Institute hosted an opening reception and seminar for the exhibition, “Revelations: Reclaiming South Asian Narratives.” By exhibiting pieces from this year’s Visiting Artists, the show aims to unravel challenging social issues that often fall outside the limelight. This year’s artists explore themes related to The Mittal Institute’s larger research projects, including the relationship between memory and history of Partition. Furthermore, attendees were able to see art focusing on tea workers in Bangladesh, trauma, and healing in Nepal, and Dalit resistance in India.
This year’s Visiting Artists are:
Imran Channa, Pakistan
Rajyashri Goody, India
Kabi Raj Lama, Nepal
Faiham Ebna Sharif, Bangladesh
The exhibition will run through May 10th and is located in the CGIS concourse.
