Chitra Ganesh: On Disobedience
For this lecture, organized in conjunction with “Simone Leigh: The Waiting Room,” artist Chitra Ganesh will draw upon her recent visual research on the aesthetics and performative gestures of protest, exploring the notion of disobedience as it has been mobilized in political protest and social movements outside of the United States. Ganesh will share images and texts that elaborate on forms of disobedience—as harnessed most specifically in the Global South—that challenge structural power and actualize social change, drawing attention to state-sponsored violence and erasures enacted on human bodies.
