Visiting Artist at URI!

Mithu Sen will be at URI next Tuesday!

Mithu Sen is an Indian artist known for her fantastical and provocative multi-media (painting, drawing, performance...) works that earned her India’s inaugural Skoda Prize in 2010. Sen studied at Santiniketan before continuing her art studies at the Glasgow School of Art. Sen’s work consists of motifs that playfully subvert commonly held beliefs about femininity and sexuality. Sen’s intuitive, free-spirited practice invites viewers into her own personal psyche and streams of consciousness, allowing them to discover new identities including their own.
Sen exhibits internationally. Her recent exhibitions/performances include the Tate Modern, England and Kiran Nadar Museum of Art and the Devi Art Foundation, New Delhi, India and the Zachęta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw, Poland.
