Gallery Wendi Norris will exhibit a solo presentation of works by Brooklyn-based artist Chitra Ganesh.
Titled "Sultana's Dream", this new body of work debuted in the artist's solo exhibition at New York's renowned exhibition space, The Kitchen, in the Fall of 2018. The work takes its name and narrative from a 1905 story by Bengali author and activist, Begum Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain. In it, Hossain envisions a utopian future where gender roles in India are reversed: women are educated and in positions of power, and government, technology and the environment coexist in harmony.
Ganesh's "Sultana's Dream" interprets the original story in her signature graphic style in a suite of 27 individual Linocut prints. An auditory reading of the story will also be part of the installation.
