Extended through July 19, 2020
Chitra Ganesh’s Sultana’s Dream is an exhibition of Ganesh’s 2018 portfolio of 27 linocuts. The project Sultana’s Dream was inspired by Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain’s early 20th-century story of the same title; the prints—all black linocuts on tan paper—both illustrate elements of the text and use its imagery and themes to explore urgent topics of the political present.
Shown: The Condition of Womanhood
