This groundbreaking exhibition retraces the lives and achievements of Africans in the Indian subcontinent from the 16th to the 20th centuries. It features over 100 photographic reproductions of paintings and contemporary photographs documenting the lives of some of the East African diaspora in India, known as Habshis and Siddis.
Space Drawing by Sun K. Kwak
New York-based Korean-American artist Sun K. Kwak’s canvas is architectural space, and her primary medium is black masking tape. Kwak created a site-specific installation at the Wang Center with her sprawling freehand strokes over surfaces, to dramatic effect.
