Jaishri Abichandani: Flower-Headed Children
January 30, 2022 — May 8, 2022
Flower-Headed Children is the first comprehensive museum survey of New York-based artist and curator Jaishri Abichandani’s varied creative production. Over her 25-year career, Abichandani has utilized folk and vernacular aesthetics and craft-based materials to create intricate figurative sculptures and painted portraits. Her works open traditional devotional iconography and narratives to contemporary anti-racist, feminist, queer, and politically radical possibilities. The exhibition is curated by writer, independent curator, and educator Anuradha Vikram.
This exhibition is supported in part by the Antonia and Vladimer Kulaev Cultural Heritage Foundation, the Bernard Kester Trust in Memory of Edith Wyle, and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture.
The artist would also like to thank the following for their additional support: Foundation for Contemporary Arts, FST Studio Project Fund, and Florian Peters Messers.
