Chila Kumari Singh Burman￼
A talk by Chila Kumari Singh Burman.
Iconic contemporary artist, Chila Kumari Singh Burman, joins us for an exclusive talk about her career as an artist to date.
Describing herself as a ‘Punjabi Liverpudlian’, Chila mashes up stereotypes to create new identities, beyond the limitations imposed on South Asian women in a British cultural context. Her work pushes the limits of creative experimentation while exploring themes of feminism, race and representation.
During the event, Chila discusses her rich and varied career, spanning printmaking, painting, sculpture, film and multi-layered installation, with key projects including Tate Britain’s 2020 Winter Commission Remembering a Brave New World and the 2021 Covent Garden Installation Do You See Words in Rainbows.
