At ArtRage….From Gods to Social Justice: Indian Folk Artists Challenging Traditions


April 6 to May 18, 2019
Opening Reception – Saturday, April 6, 2019 from *6-8pm

Representing two painting styles of eastern India, this exhibition includes a male tradition of scrolls from Bengal and a female tradition of wall paintings, now done on paper, from the Mithila region of northern Bihar.

Both of these art forms have morphed and changed in contemporary India, creating
space for artists to use their art to comment on issues facing their lives, their nation and the planet. Their work deals with a variety of injustices such as violence against women,
female infanticide, political corruption, climate change, and war. (*Please note this time change!)

You Really Won’t Want To Miss Seeing This Remarkable Work With An Important Message!

From the collections of Geraldine Forbes, Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus of SUNY Oswego, and Susan Wadley, the Ford Maxwell Professor of South Asia at Syracuse University.
