Exhibition Opening Reception: ReVision by Annu Palakunnathu Matthew

September 30, 2021 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm Griswold House

Join us in celebrating ReVision, the compelling and thought-provoking exhibition of works by artist and photographer Annu Palakunnathu Matthew.

For over twenty years, Matthew has been making photo-based works of art that deal with lesser known histories and immigration. Born in England, raised in India, and now living in the United States, Matthew draws on her personal experience and identity, and also collaborates to tell the stories of others from South Asia. These experiences and collaborations culminate in powerful and evocative photographic, installation and sculpture works that incorporate a unique blend of still and moving images and sound. Her works draw on archival photographs for their inspiration and re-examine historical narratives and the legacies of colonization.

Blending photographs, video, sound, sculpture, text, and narrative for her works, Matthew creates a dynamic and immersive experience for viewers while she recovers many all-too neglected histories. Join us to celebrate the artist and this important exhibition.
