BHARTI KHER Matter surveys the work of internationally acclaimed artist Bharti Kher. Her work encompasses painting, sculpture and installation, often incorporating bindis and saris, and speaks about domesticity, gender, body politics and the realities of being female today. In the exhibition’s accompanying catalogue, eight distinguished writers offer psychoanalytic, literary, cultural and political readings of her work. The publication also reproduces a career-spanning selection of artworks that represent the sophisticated nature and diversity of Kher’s artistic practice.
Co-published by the Vancouver Art Gallery and Black Dog Publishing on the occasion of the exhibition BHARTI KHER Matter, curated by Daina Augaitis and Diana Freundl and presented from July 9 to October 10, 2016.
