Bhasha Chakrabarti

Bhasha Chakrabarti (b. 1991) has been based in Honolulu, New Delhi, New York, and now New Haven. She is interested in exploring how artwork, even when grounded in local materials and symbols, can speak to issues beyond the local by situating her practice within global conversations around race, gender, and power. By crossing many genres, she explores art-making as a mode of discourse and her work generates dialogues between subaltern tropes and feminine forms of labor from the global South and the agendas of resistance movements of marginalized communities in the global North.
