“Painting Is My Everything” talk with SF Asian Art Museum curator
Tuesday, September 18, 2018, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Join the curator of the San Francisco Asian Art Museum for a talk about a new exhibit featuring a style of painting by primarily women artists in India that has become a catalyst for economic growth and social change.
Associate Art Curator Qamar Adamjee will share a slideshow presentation and answer questions. Light refreshments will be provided. The talk is organized by the Asian Pacific Islander Staff Association.
“Painting Is My Everything: Art from India’s Mithila Region,” opens Sept. 7, 2018 at the museum. Discover the bold artistic vision of 17 contemporary artists, many of them women, from the provincial Mithila region of India. Their visually delightful work has received commercial success, bringing much-needed income to their families and catalyzing social change in the region. Working within a traditional painting style, these artists address topics that are at once local and global, personal and universal, from reflections on piety to current events.
