    Women in the arts have always played a pivotal role in shaping new meaning, whether in painting, music, sculpture, theater, or etc. Either as a subject or as an observer, women are a reminder of the great creative spirit.

    Dulce Lopez, Jhovany de la Ala, Roberto Marosi, give us part of their work of how they capture women in their expression and translate them, women musicians, women artists, and women in their own words.

  • Jagah Jadoo: Magic Place

    Jagah // Jadoo

    • Opening: Friday, May 17, 2019
    • From 6 PM to 9 PM
    • Main Gallery (2nd Floor)
    • Runs from May 13 to May 25, 2019

    Curated by Natasha Dangond, Vasudhaa Narayanan, Madhvi Trivedi-Pathak, and Shannon Prasad.

    Jagah // Jadoo (Magic Place) creates an opportunity for artists to reimagine narratives that have been erased by collective hxstories of colonization. Through music, dance, and visual art, the evening long showcase followed by a three weeklong exhibition, aims to cultivate and claim a space for South Asian artists across disciplines, identities, and geographies, in one magic place.

    Jagah's focus is to weave together themes of geography, sense of belonging, and nonlinear diasporic experiences. The Sanskrit word translating to "place" is the manifestation of a multidimensional space for artists to present their sanctuaries and investigate their individual and shared narratives tied to the South Asian experience.

    Jadoo acts as a dua to the transcestors, allowing South Asian queer and trans folx to build community with their past, present and future ancestors in a space centered on individual and collective conversations on death, grief, and mental illness.

    Away from the heteronormative and Eurocentric gaze, the exhibition provides a platform for artists of the South Asian diaspora to examine how our identities serve as a form of resistance by asserting claims to belonging.
