Join student educator Yue Dai, PhD student in the Department of Art History & Archaeology in Arts & Sciences, for a tour of Chitra Ganesh: Dreaming in Multiverse. This exhibition presents a series of the artist’s recent prints and several video animations that draw on Buddhist and Hindu iconography, science fiction, queer theory, comics, Surrealism, Bollywood posters, and video games, combining them with her own visual imagery and drawings to present speculative visions of society in the past, present, and future.

Free and open to the public.

Please arrive at least fifteen minutes before the start of the tour. Our tours can accommodate groups of twenty, but we encourage you to check in at the Welcome Desk to secure your place.
