Residency Dates
  • Mar 3rd 2020 to Mar 16th 2020

Ranu Mukherjee works across media, composing with drawing, painting, and print alongside video, animation and, choreography. Her recent projects address the confluence of tensions between colonial legacy, indigenous power, and ways the colonized speak to the future. She engages an elemental perspective in making art that embodies forces of otherness, of the hybrid, the somatic, the diasporic, the temporal, and the speculative. Mukherjee has shown widely, with recent solo exhibitions and projects presented by the De Young Museum, Di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art, Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, and The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. She will be a participating artist in the 2019 Karachi Biennial. Mukherjee’s work is included in the collections of the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, Avery Collection, Robert D. Bielecki Foundation, Kadist Foundation, JP Morgan Collection, Oakland Museum of California, and the San Jose Museum of Art. She is a co-founder of 0rphan drift, a cyber-feminist media collective that began in London in 1994. She is represented by Gallery Wendi Norris.
