Chitra Ganesh, RISD’s first Kirloskar Visiting Scholar
Brooklyn-based artist Chitra Ganesh will discuss her work in relation to contemporary art and visual culture in India and South Asia, as well as her plans as the first Kirloskar Visiting Scholar in Painting.
The Kirloskar Visiting Scholar in Painting is the result of a $1 million gift to RISD – the single largest gift ever from an international donor – to establish an endowed fund to support visiting artists and scholars in the Painting department. The endowment highlights RISD’s growing emphasis on global engagement and positions the Painting department to further that commitment by attracting visiting artists and scholars from India or the US who have a strong connection to Indian culture.
In Spring 2015, the New Delhi, India-based collective Raqs Media Collective will be in residence for one month as the second Kirloskar Visiting Scholars.
