Kanishka Raja: I and I
September 22, 2019 @ 11:00 amFree
Painter Kanishka Raja transforms a hybrid inheritance—the post-colonial confluences of an urban Indian childhood, familial roots in textile manufacture and clothing design, liberal arts and studio education in the US, bi-national footing in New York and Kolkata—into gorgeously patterned and painted work that both reflects and exceeds its foundational elements. At once conceptually heady and aesthetically alluring, Raja’s series, I and I, combines traditional painting with woven, scanned, printed, embroidered, and reproduced counterparts.
Born in Calcutta in 1969, Kanishka Raja lived and worked in New York and Kolkata until his death in 2018.
Free and open to the public.
Exhibit runs Sept. 13-Dec. 15
