Culture Fix: Saloni Mathur on The Strange Sculptures of Rina Banerjee
Talk / Lecture
12:00 to 1:00
Fri, March 6, 2020

UCLA Professor of Art History Saloni Mathur will lead a gallery discussion of artist Rina Banerjee’s strange and complex sculptural assemblages. Simultaneously ephemeral, exotic, beautiful, and menacing, these “unnatural” organic forms evoke history and myth, yet remain elusive. By encouraging visual and experiential engagement with key works in the exhibition, Professor Mathur will invite visitors to consider the intricate relationships between material, technique, and narrative in Banerjee’s artistic practice.

Cosponsored by the UCLA Center for India and South Asian Studies (CISA).
