IN PERSON: Ancient Art, Modern Freedom: Madhubani Painting as a Tool for Liberation

Event Description

For some, practicing a traditional art is an emotional act. For others, it can address an environmental or political cause or a social practice—a tool for binding communities. For years, people, especially women and youth, have used the ancient Indian art of Madhubani painting as a non-violent rebellion against oppression, poverty, and social injustice.

In this talk, discover how practicing one’s own tradition can liberate and empower. Having practiced Madhubani art since childhood, artist Deepti Agrawal compares and contrasts how this heritage art has empowered communities across countries and demographics. Agrawal will also provide a demo and a work-along session where participants can practice the Madhubani style and learn more about its rich heritage.
