Sifting: A Collection of Work
Nirmal Raja

Aug 10-Oct 12  |  Fine Arts Gallery
Opening Reception: Sept 22  |  4-6:30 pm
Artist Talk: Sept 22  |  2 pm

Sifting features an inventive body of work by interdisciplinary artist Nirmal Raja exploring themes of cultural negotiation, memory, and translation. Born in India and currently residing in Milwaukee, Raja's artistic practice draws upon varied materials and sources to address her experience as a transplanted individual living between two cultures. This presentation centers on Cloud Palace, a large-scale, immersive installation that reconfigures a 4th-century epic poem into a contemporary artistic idiom. Other works on view explore notions of time, rhythm, and music, language as both scripts and form, and embodied cultural memory.
