Space 118 On Making: Rina Banerjee
Artist Talk
August 30, 2020
8:30 AM EST

Space 118 presents On Making, 2020 – a series of talks that delve into the age-old query of “how do we make?”

Whether their making is concerned with sculptures, exhibitions, spaces, or books – we invite artists and curators to trace the arc their methodologies have taken to this day, and probe how these might respond to the changing contours of tomorrow.

Rina Banerjee will take us through this heterogenous practice explored in her retrospective Make Me a Summary of the World – which closed in March 2019 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts now showing at the Frist Art Museum in Nashville, Tennessee. She is joined in conversation by Phalguni Guliani and Saloni Doshi.
