Meet the Artist (73 of 97)
« | »

"Zarina: Paper Like Skin" is the first retrospective of the Indain-born American artist Zarina, featuring approximately 60 works dating from 1961 to the present. Paper is central to Zarina's practice, both as a surface to print on and as a material with it's own properties and history.  Works in the exhibition include woodcuts as well as three-dimensional casts in paper pulp.  Zarina's vocabulary is minimal yet rich in associations with her life and the themes of displacement and exhile.  The concept of home-whether personal, geographic, national, spiritual, or familial-resonates throughout her oeuvre.  Join Zarina and curator of the exhibition, Allegra Pesenti as they speak about Zarina's life, work, and history. (Run time 12min.)

On view at the Hammer Museum September 29 - December 30, 2012
