The award-winning artist Ranu Mukherjee will lead us through the exhibition, Art+Process+Ideas, which features the works of three Bay Area artists, Ranu Mukherjee, Heesoo Kwon and Liat Berdugo. The exhibition features various approaches to art making, the use of technology and how ideas are brought to practical application. Ranu will also speak on the evolution of her artwork. Her signature additions to the canvas is sari fabrics as an inherent element of her work, interwoven with her cultural heritage.
Ranu Mukherjee was born in Massachusetts and now resides and works in San Francisco. Her collage-based paintings and film installations cultivate ecological, somatic, feminist and multidimensional perspectives on time, energy and power emerging from ruptured colonial legacies. Solo exhibitions and commissioned projects have been presented by many art institutions and by Singapore Biennale 2022 and Karachi Biennale 2019. Her work is held in the permanent collections of the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, de Young Museum, the JP Morgan Chase Collection, New York, the Kadist Foundation, the Oakland Museum of California, the San Jose Museum of Art, and San Francisco Arts Commission, among others.
