Shivery Proof: The art of Ranu Mukherjee

By on January 3, 2018


The Pennsylvania College of Art & Design main gallery will showcase the artwork of San Francisco based Indian-American artist Ranu Mukherjee for its next exhibition, which runs through Feb. 9.

In Shivery Proof, viewers can enjoy Mukherjee’s hybrid films as well as her paintings and drawings. “Hybrid film” is a term Mukherjee coined for her moving image works made by animating layers of photographic, painted and digitally generated images.

According to her artist statement, Mukherjee creates video installations, drawings and paintings driven by her mixed heritage, vision of global citizenship and recent events related to climate change. Mukherjee uses forms of animism to address some of the most pressing issues of our time, questioning the norm while simultaneously imagining and creating alternate solutions.

A First Friday opening reception will be held Jan. 5, from 5 to 8 p.m. and Feb. 2, from 5 to 8 p.m. in PCA&D’s main gallery, 204 N. Prince St., Lancaster. Admission is free.

Mukherjee will present an artist talk on Jan. 22, at 10 a.m., in PCA&D’s atrium. It is free and open to the public
