Visiting Artist Lecture Series
Rina Banerjee is a visual artist whose work draws on her transnational and personal history as an immigrant. Her paintings and sculptures use a wide range of materials and historical references to explore ethnicity, race, migration and American Diasporic histories. Banerjee has exhibited widely, including 14 international biennials such as the 57th Venice Biennial, Yokohama Triennale, and Kochi Biennial. In 2018, Banerjee’s first North America solo retrospective “Rina Banerjee: Make Me a Summary of the World” opened at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Her works are included in many private and public collections such as the Whitney Museum of American Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Centre Pompidou.
Organized by the Department of Art and Art History. Supported by the UC Davis College of Letters and Science and co-sponsored by the Manetti Shrem Museum.
