Zarina: Paper Like Skin is the first retrospective of the Indian-born American artist Zarina, featuring approximately 60 works dating from 1961 to the present. Paper is central to Zarina’s practice, both as a surface to print on and as a material with its own properties and history. Works in the exhibition include woodcuts as well as three-dimensional casts in paper pulp. Zarina’s vocabulary is minimal yet rich in associations with her life and the themes of displacement and exile. The concept of home—whether personal, geographic, national, spiritual, or familial—resonates throughout her oeuvre. Organized by Allegra Pesenti, curator, Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts.
Zarina: Paper Like Skin is made possible by a major gift from Susan Steinhauser and Daniel Greenberg/The Greenberg Foundation.
Generous support was also provided by the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, Susie Crippen, the Audrey & Sydney Irmas Charitable Foundation, the LLWW Foundation, Catherine Glynn Benkaim and Barbara Timmer, and Christie’s. Special thanks to Luhring Augustine, New York.
