Doublebind: Art of the South Asian Diaspora
Organized in conjunction with the 2014 Cross-Cultural Arts Festival, and curated by Kristen Evangelista, this exhibition is inspired by the writing of South Asian theorist Ranajit Guha. He describes the “doublebind” or the predicament of the migrant who straddles opposing realms such as native land and adopted home, and past and present. The artists in this exhibition grapple with issues of connection and detachment, belonging and non-belonging. Using new media, photography, sculpture, and video, they explore a contested relationship to space, territory, and geography. Artists include: Jaishri Abichandani, Hasan Elahi, Naeem Mohaiemen, Yamini Nayar, and Jaret Vadera.
