Artist Talk with Uday K. Dhar
3-4pm: Discussion with the artist from moderated by Henone K. Girma.
12-5pm: Closing Reception for I Am A God, the Mythomania Series by Uday K. Dhar.
Throughout this new artwork series “Mythomania” Uday K. Dhar recreates the Gods in a series of mixed media studies with a new lens and in a contemporary context. He cultivates an alternative view of the history of Western Art by questioning what this imagery means to a person of color. With each application of paint and various other materials a conversation is happening between Uday Dhar and the deity. What makes the works intriguing is the subtle sensation that Dhar lived inside each one of them as he went through the process… becoming a reinvented version of Adonis, Apollo, Hercules, Sebastian and so on.
