Naya Samachar (new stories)

5-14 June 1996
Gallery 401 401 Richmond St. W, suite 240

This exhibit features a multidisciplinary array of work by six women visual artists of the South Asian Diaspora. Alia Ghani Toor, Karma Clarke-Davis, Jaishri Abichandani, Anoka Faruqee, Rachel Kalpana James and Neena Arora open up artistic dialogues as they re-invent their artistic, cultural and historical traditions. Naya Samachar deals with the re-contextualization of cultural motifs, the deconstruction of beauty and heritage and the creation of new spaces in a quest to create ‘home’ in the diaspora. Opening reception: 4 June 1996, 7-10pm
