An Other India: Diverse Impressions

 

What images does India evoke for artists? How does it inspire their art and the creative process? The country, as many perceive it, has a colorful culture, not only complex but also rich in contrast. Riverside Arts Center will host an exhibit of contemporary Indian themed visual art, curated by artists Mia Risberg and Sajeev Visweswaran. It will explore the Indian experience, its impressions and influences, from the perspective of both Indian and non-Indian artists.

Artists have submitted a variety of artworks, keeping in mind the Indian influence in their art in their artist statement. The Indian connection is interpreted broadly as art that is inspired by India in some way, directly or indirectly. Artists are not necessarily of Indian origin, creating a lively exchange of inter-cultural dialogue.
