Brooklyn, NY --- Transparent Studio at Bose Pacia is pleased to announce the current artist-in-residence, Chitra Ganesh. Her drawing, installation, text-based work, and collaborations seek to excavate and rewrite hidden narratives typically excluded from official canons of history, literature, and art. Her work is inspired by mythology, folklore, sci-fi, Bollywood, comic books and graffiti. During the month long residency, Ganesh will use the space to develop her wall drawings by exploring the use of sculptural elements, printmaking technique and collage ephemera. The public is invited to an Open Studio event and Artist Talk on 11th July from 6-9pm. Please contact the gallery to arrange for a visit to the studio between 18th June and 16th July.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Chitra Ganesh received her BA in Comparative Literature and Art Semiotics in 1996 and her MFA from Columbia University in 2002. Ganesh’s work has been exhibited widely at venues including PS 1/MOMA, Brooklyn Museum, the Asia Society, and the Andy Warhol Museum, Fondazione Sandretto in Italy, Nature Morte Berlin, ZKM in Germany, and the Gothenburg Kunsthalle. She is the recipient of numerous awards including the Joan Mitchell Awards for Painting and Sculpture, and a John Simon Guggenheim Creative Arts Fellowship. Ganesh will be the 2012-2013 artist-in-residence at New York University’s A/P/A Institute with Mariam Ghani for their work, Index of the Disappeared. Ganesh lives and works in Brooklyn.

About Transparent Studio at Bose Pacia, NY:
Launched in January 2012, Transparent Studio is an artist studio program founded by Bose Pacia. Emerging and mid career artists are selected for the studio program through a submissions and nominations process based on project proposal and artistic merit. Residents are provided with a studio in the main gallery space for a 1-3 month period. By turning the transitional gallery space into temporary artist studios on the street-level in an active arts neighborhood, we are hoping to allow for an atmosphere of engagement and conversation around the creative process. During the program, the public is invited to interact with the artist throughout their creative process allowing exchange and collaborative relationships.

Studio hours are by appointment only.
