IAAC Director of Exhibitions: Tanu Jindal IAAC ERASING BORDERS

Opening Reception with Dance Peformances

Artists' Panel

April 26, 4:30, Lecture Hall 1
The opening reception for the exhibition features two newly commissioned dance works performed by Stony Brook University students and faculty: Amy Yopp Sullivan’s Sensorium, in which dancers discover and delight in the new and different in an ethereal dance journey through the artworks;

and Malini Srinivasan’s Stealing the Queen’s Royal Jelly, which responds to Reet Das’s painting of the same name by enacting the imagined lives of bees as they collect honey and build a hive.

The reception is preceded by an interactive artists’ panel, which foreground discussions of the creative process and the experience of diaspora.

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 eighth year, Erasing Borders is curated by Vijay Kumar and produced by the Indo-American Arts Council. Free and open to the public.
