  • Description

    The School of Art + Art History at the University of Florida is proud to present visiting artist Chitra Ganesh on April 3, 2018, at 6 p.m. in Little Hall, Room 101 (LIT 101). The Spring 2018 Visiting Artists Lecture Series is free and open to the public. The lectures offer the community an important opportunity to engage in discussions about contemporary art and culture in relation to national and international trends.

    Chitra Ganesh’s drawing-based practice brings to light narrative representations of femininity, sexuality, and power typically absent from canons of literature, history and art. Her wall installations, comics, photography, and mixed media works on paper often take historical and mythic texts as inspiration and points of departure. Ganesh received her BA from Brown University and her MFA from Columbia University. She has had solo exhibitions at PS1/MOMA, The Andy Warhol Museum, Gothenberg Kunsthalle, and the Brooklyn Museum. Her works are in the permanent collections of Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum, and Museum of Modern Art. Ganesh has received a Pollock Krasner Foundation Award and a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship. She is currently a Hodder Fellow at Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts.

    The Visiting Artist Lecture Series is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, School of Art + Art History, and the Graduate Student Organization of Photography.
