Travelling Lecture - Make Me a Summary of the World

Wednesday, Feb 6, 2019 from 7:00pm to 8:00pm


The Abington Free Library is excited to welcome a traveling lecture from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. This lecture will be an in depth exploration of contemporary artist Rina Banerjee. Delve into the artist’s complex and fanciful world. Known for her large-scale sculptures and installations made from materials sourced throughout the world, Banerjee’s works investigate the splintered experiences of identity, tradition, and culture prevalent in diasporic communities. The works raise questions about exoticism, cultural appropriation, globalization, and feminism in fragmented figures, riotous use of color, and symbolic materials.
