ANINDITA DUTTA: MAYA
May 27 – August 27, 2014
The Arthur M. Sackler Museum of Art and Archaeology at Peking University is pleased to present Anindita Dutta’s “MAYA,” the second exhibition of the Dame Jillian Sackler International Artists Exhibition Program.
“MAYA,” or “illusion,” deals with human existence and non-existence, or life and death.
Ms. Dutta’s works are powerful representations of the human condition, they are emotional rides into the inner self. Each showcases the laments and triumphs of the human spirit. “Trapped,” “Gambit, “Exit,” “Loss of Identity,” “Life Line,” “Silent Dialogue,” and other works command attention and one can only surrender to the meaning to oneself and to society. One cannot deny the psychological, physical and philosophical questions that arise about our lives and our cultures when viewing her work.
The Dame Jillian Sackler International Artists Exhibition Program was established to bring talented international artists to the Sackler Museum at Beida. Artwork for this program must have cultural value in order to create an open dialogue between the work and the viewer. It is our mission to have exhibitions that are informative, exciting, interactive and most of all thought-provoking. The aim of this program is to create cross-cultural understanding and promote lasting relationships between peoples by bringing works by artists from diverse backgrounds to China.
