Artist Talk: Mequitta Ahuja
May 15, 6-8pm. Free and open to the public.
Mequitta Ahuja translates performance documentation photographs into dense mixed-media drawings. Working across artistic histories, referencing myths and her mixed ancestral heritage (Ahuja is Africa-American and South Asian-American), she creates invented landscapes for her large-scale self portraits.
Mequitta Ahuja received her MFA from UIC in 2003, and has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Lawndale Art Center in Houston, TX, BravinLee Prgrams in New York and Gallerie Nathalie Obadia in Paris, France.
Cosponsored by DePaul’s Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity President’s Diversity Series, and the Department of Art, Media, & Design.
