A solo exhibition of works by Chitra Ganesh, the Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities’ (CWAH) 2015-16 Estelle Lebowitz Endowed Visiting Artist in Residence, opens September 1 at Douglass Library.  A reception and lecture by the artist will be held on Tuesday, November 3 at 5:00 p.m.

Ganesh is a Brooklyn-based artist whose drawing, mixed media, site-specific, and text based works address buried narratives typically absent from the official canons of history, literature, and art. Her imagery is drawn from a broad range of references spanning from the iconography of Hindu, Greek, and Buddhist mythology to 19th century European portraiture and fairytales to more contemporary cultural references such as Bollywood, anime, and comic books. Ganesh is widely recognized for her experimental use of comic and large-scale narrative forms to communicate submerged histories and alternate articulations of femininity. She is the recipient of a number of residences and her works have been exhibited internationally as well as across the United States.

The exhibition and lecture are part of the Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series, a program of CWAH in partnership with Rutgers University Libraries, and are sponsored by the Estelle Lebowitz Memorial Fund, which provides funding to bring the work of renowned contemporary women artists through exhibitions, class visits, and public lectures to Rutgers and the general public.

The exhibition will be on display through December 10.  The gallery is open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information on the artist and exhibition, click here.
