Each year, the Mittal Institute’s Visiting Artist Fellowship (VAF) welcomes mid-career artists from South Asia to Harvard’s campus to engage with Harvard faculty and students, to participate in art exhibitions, and to perform research using Harvard’s intellectual resources to further their art practice.

About the Artist
Sunanda Khajuria is a visual artist who is deeply inspired by Chinese traditional painting techniques and draws her imagery from both the terrain of ethereal memory as well as from actual, physical landscapes she has visited. Through her psychedelic and startling dreamscapes, she attempts to create liminal spaces, capturing the experience of being ‘in transit.’ Using a lexicon of symbols, and visual metaphors, she skillfully interweaves images of transition and mobility and places them in a non-perspectival liminal space.

Speaker: Karthika Naïr, Author and Poet
Moderator: Parimal Patil, Professor of Religion and Indian Philosophy, Harvard University
In Until the Lions, Karthika Naïr retells the Mahabharata through the embodied voices of women and marginal characters, so often conquered and destroyed throughout history. She captures the richness and complexity of the Mahabharata, while illuminating lives buried beneath the edifices of one of the world’s most venerated books — revealing the most intimate threads of desire, greed, and sacrifice.
