BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:
Woman Made Gallery proudly announces the opening of “Cultu ral Memory: Transdiasporic Art Practices\,” a group show with art in a vari ety of media by 23 women.

Juried by Indian artist Pritika Chowdh ry\, this exhibit includes works of artists from diverse locations and heri tages\, whose creations embody individual acts of memorialization and remem brance.

The works reveal a broad range of engagements with memor y – some are about collective memories of large-scale traumas\, some are ab out familial or generational memories\, and others are about individual mem ories. These acts of remembrance reference and create connections between t he geopolitics of India\, Korea\, Latvia\, Sri Lanka\, Germany\, America\, Pakistan\, Iran\, Japan\, and Trinidad\, among others.

The artis ts in this show have each taken on subject matters that are difficult and p erhaps even controversial\, but their artistic practices show a critical en gagement with their specific material and a commitment to building bridges across cultural and national barriers through the visual arts.

T he exhibition opens with an Artist Reception on Friday\, September 4th\, fr om 6 to 9 p.m. Works are on display through October 10\, 2009.
