Chila Kumari Singh Burman ‘Punk Punjabi Prints: A Suitcase of Etchings, from Reason to Madness’

The Lavit Gallery presents an exhibition by British artist Chila Kumari Singh Burman, organised by Cork Printmakers and curated by Miguel Amado.

Beginning 5.30pm, this event comprises of a guided tour of the exhibition, in which the artist discusses the works on view, and a panel discussion between the artist and the curator addressing her practice and career. Burman’s practice explores the relationship between gender, class and ethnicity in the construction of identity. Her key medium is printmaking, often with collage, although she also uses sculpture, film and photography. She initiated her career in the early 1980s, and was a key player in the British black arts movement.

‘Punk Punjabi Prints: A Suitcase of Etchings, from Reason to Madness’ is Burman’s first exhibition in Ireland. The exhibition features a selection of print-based works made between the late 1970s and the late 1980s examining themes such as racism, immigration policies, personal diasporic narratives, legacies of British imperialism and sexuality within patriarchy.
