Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum acquires work by Chitra Ganesh

Hales is delighted to announce the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum's acquisition of Multiverse Dreaming, 2021.

Multiverse Dreaming (2021), her fourth comics series, was largely completed during COVID-19 lockdowns. The suite of prints is inspired by Amar Chitra Katha (literally "Immortal Picture Stories"), a popular series of comic books originating in the 1960s in India that includes tales of epic myth, folklore and history of the South Asian subcontinent. Ganesh uses the series as a point of departure, constructing images by digitally combining her own pen and ink drawings with visual fragments appropriated from the comics to present nonlinear narratives that focus on reflection, regeneration and desire in times of uncertainty.
