Presented by the Department of Art with support from the Department of Art History, Chao Center for Asian Studies, Moody Center for the Arts, and in collaboration with the Center for African and African American Studies.

Chitra Ganesh is a Brooklyn-based visual artist whose work encompasses drawing, painting, comics, installation, video art, and animation. Through studies in literature, semiotics, social theory, science fiction, and historical and mythic texts, Ganesh attempts to reconcile representations of femininity, sexuality, and power absent from the artistic and literary canons.

Ganesh holds a BA in Art-Semiotics and Comparative Literature from Brown University, and an MFA from Columbia University. She has exhibited widely across the U.S., Europe, and South Asia and her work is held in prominent public collections such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, San Jose Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art.
