Zoom Artist Talk with Manjari Sharma
April 15, 2020 at 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Make yourself a cup of chai using Manjari Sharma’s family recipe and join us for a live Zoom talk by the artist whose large scale photographs of Hindu deities are featured in the exhibition Transcendent Deities of India: The Everyday Occurrence of the Divine.
The multi-year project to re-create a temple-like experience of nine Hindu deities photographically required the cross-continental organization of a large team of models and craftspeople. Sharma will discuss the genesis and execution of the project and will be joined from India by Payal Bhattacharya, the woman who portrayed one of the most challenging characters in the series, Maa Kali.
