Chitra Ganesh | Dreaming in Multiverse | Frost Art Museum

Hales is excited to announce the opening of Chitra Ganesh's solo exhibition, Dreaming in Multiverse, at The Frost Art Museum, Miami, through 16 April 2023.
Chitra Ganesh draws on Buddhist and Hindu iconography, science fiction, queer theory, comics, Surrealism, Bollywood posters, and video games, to inform her illustrations and drawings. This exhibition presents a major wall installation, a series of recent prints, and several video animations that exemplify her practice of experimental storytelling.
Thirteen digital prints collectively titled Multiverse Dreaming are inspired by a popular comic book series, issued by the Mumbai-based publisher Amar Chitra Katha in the mid-1960s. The publisher became renowned for its comics and graphic novels rooted in Indian mythologies, folklore, and epic tales. The nonlinear narratives of Ganesh's prints focus on themes of reflection, regeneration, togetherness, and desire in times of uncertainty. While the imagery taps into a collective memory for many Indians, who have grown up reading these comics, Ganesh stretches the familiar to interweave utopian possibilities into visual idioms and poetic texts.
