ComingThrough

"As an immigrant I see myself as a cultural hybrid, finding equal inspiration in the prosaic and the theatrical. My paintings are as much a way for me to stay grounded in the everyday as they are to dream and wander.” — Sangram Majumdar

Asia Society Texas Center welcomes contemporary artist Sangram Majumdar to discuss his work as it relates to the current Fayez Sarofim Grand Hall exhibition. Majumdar's paintings emphasize the shared points of connection between seemingly disparate cultures, and act as palimpsests, layered with a range of historical references that are lost and recovered as the images unfold. His work refers to the cyclical nature of history and the catalytic connections between major cultural centers in Asia and the west.

The exhibition runs through September 10, 2017, and is open Tuesday-Friday, 11:00 am–6:00 pm, and Saturday-Sunday, 10:00 am–6:00 pm. Admission to the exhibition is free.
