THE FRAN AND WARREN RUPP CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS LECTURE SERIES

Contemporary Artists Lecture Series: Raqs Media Collective

Wednesday, November 2, 2011, 6:30 p.m.
Gartner Auditorium

Raqs Media Collective (Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula, Shuddhabrata Sengupta) broadens our understanding of what artists do. Based in Delhi, India, their focus is on urban space, global circuits, and power structures. They work as a group, employing unusual expressive means such as archive gathering and exhibition making in addition to a large variety of media in their work. Their method is philosophical inquiry and their sculptural installations encourage new cultural practices.

Free to the public.
