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.
