Don’t miss a special exhibit by the South Asian Women’s Creative Collective (SAWCC ) – “Her Stories: Fifteen Years of the South Asian Women’s Creative Collective”, on view at the Queens Museum of Art from August 11th, 2012 to October 7th, 2012. In celebration of our 15th anniversary, Her Stories is a retrospective look at SAWCC’s past and present, featuring the creative works of over a hundred diasporic South Asian women artists, filmmakers, musicians, dancers, and writers, with an installation of archival photographs, publications, and ephemera.
Employing embroidery, digital manipulation, automated techniques, and other processes, artists Chitra Ganesh, Jaishri Abichandani, Nazneen Ayyub Wood, Aisha Abid Hussain, Jayna Mistry, Mona Kamal, and Swati Khurana present emotive images of varying historic registers. Annu Matthew, Anjali Bhargava, Sabelo Narasimhan, and Mariam Ghani offer photographs of bodies coded with racial signifiers.
