Punk Punjabi Prints: A Suitcase of Etchings, from Reason to Madness

19th September – 12th October

Lavit Gallery, Wandesford Quay, Clarke’s Bridge, Cork

The Lavit Gallery presents an exhibition by British artist Chila Kumari Singh Burman, in partnership with Cork Printmakers and curated by Miguel Amado.

Burman’s practice explores the relationship between gender, class and ethnicity in the construction of identity. Her key medium is printmaking, often with collage, although she also uses sculpture, film and photography. She initiated her career in the early 1980s, and was a key player in the British black arts movement.

‘Punk Punjabi Prints: A Suitcase of Etchings, from Reason to Madness’ is Burman’s first exhibition in Ireland. The exhibition features a selection of print-based works made between the late 1970s and the late 1980s examining themes such as racism, immigration policies, personal diasporic narratives, legacies of British imperialism and sexuality within patriarchy.

Burman’s work is held in a number of private and public collections including Tate Collection, Victoria and Albert Museum, Scottish National Portrait Gallery, British Council, Birmingham
