IAAC ERASING BORDERS 2016

Erasing Borders is a richly provocative exhibition by artists of the Indian diaspora who confront issues of sexuality, terror, disease, the environment, racial and sectarian politics in painting, prints, installations, video, and sculpture. With great technical mastery and diversity of theme and style, these works combine traditional Indian aesthetics with Western elements, and speak to the powerful experience of personal and cultural dislocation in the global village. In its twelfth year, Erasing Borders is curated by Vijay Kumar and produced by the Indo-American Arts Council. Free and open to the public.

Curated by Kathryn Myers, Radiate: Art of the South Asian Diaspora is on view November 2–December 15, 2012 at the University of Illinois Chicago Gallery 400. The eleven artists featured in Radiate articulate a variety of different questions centering on their identities and experiences within the South Asian Diaspora. The diversity of meaning, metaphor, and material in their work defies attempts at locating any fixed geographic or cultural “essence” of identity among these artists. Rather, multiple and mutable senses of self and history are expressed through concepts and forms that weave an abundant labyrinth of associations.

We invite you to attend the opening reception of Radiate: Art of the South Asian Diaspora on the evening November 2, 5-8pm, as well as the related programming scheduled throughout the duration of the exhibition. Admission to the Gallery and related programs is free, and they also offer group tours.

– Panel discussion: Shelly Bahl, Siona Benjamin, Pradosh Mishra, and Kathryn Myers
Thursday, November 1, 6pm

– Video presentation: Regarding India, Conversations With Contemporary Artists
Friday, November 2, 12pm

– Film and Video Screening: Translations, curated by Mathew Paul Jinks and Megha Ralapati
Wednesday, November 28, 7pm

Full details can be found on our website at gallery400.uic.edu.
