|Where||Whitney Museum of American Art

New York, NY 10014
On the occasion of Salman Toor: How Will I Know, Toor speaks with artist Chitra Ganesh about the intersections in their artistic practices. Considering the prolonged omission of South Asian American subjectivity in historical canon, popular culture, and art in the United Sates, the program highlights both artists’ strategies of mining historical sources and speculative narrarives to center queer, Brown, and immigrant experiences. The discussion touches on the progression of these stories entering into mainstream culture in the context of gentrification in New York City, the post-9/11 era, and visibility politics. The conversation is moderated by Ambika Trasi, curatorial assistant.
