Rina Banerjee, known for dazzling sculptures crafted from material sourced around the globe, has her first mid-career retrospective in an exhibition at San Jose Museum of Art, kicking off this month. “Make Me a Summary of the World” begins on May 16 and runs through Oct. 6 at the space. The exhibitions is curated by the museum staffer Lauren Schell Dickens and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts curator of contemporary art Jodi Throckmorton.
“Banerjee … is one of the most important artists of the post-colonial Indian diaspora living in the United States and her work has been shown most extensively in Europe and South Asia,” the museum says. “This exhibition, the first in-depth examination into the artist’s work, will consider Banerjee in both American and global frameworks, specifically in relation to Banerjee’s approach to feminism, globalism, colonialism and the environment.”
