About the Event

Join us for a talk with artist Shilpa Gupta, featured in the exhibition Enter the Mirror, on her wide-ranging practice.

Over the last two and a half decades, Shilpa Gupta has developed a powerful interdisciplinary approach to challenging prevailing notions of individual and collective cultural identity. Gupta examines the role of perception and subjectivity in the status of objects, places, people, and experiences, and the way value is defined and impacted by nationalism, trade, religion, and notions of security.
