When we talk about the role of gender in art or the relationship between gender and art, we cannot discount the fact that gender presentation and representation in art is not just in the hand of the artist but an outcome of the sociocultural process that defines sexual and social identity. With this in mind, we also need to talk about what art/artists include and what it excludes. How hierarchies and marginalisations and disparity can also showcase itself in art. And how art itself can become a way to push back on the same.
Joining our hosts Shriya and Sukanya in this episode is visual artist, Indu Antony. Indu is a trans-disciplinary artist, based in Bangalore. In the pursual of her work, she had to face various social barriers, and she has been relentlessly working with individuals from marginalised sections of society. She is known to explore tonalities of inward discussions which later on burst out into the communal spaces. Her work comprises of understanding feministic stands which gives way to performances and installations. Tune in as we discuss gender, art, marginalisation, and a lot more!
