Monday, October 17 at 12:15p.m. in Uris Hall G-08.

In this SAP's lecture, Natasha Bissonauth locates Chitra Ganesh (b. 1975)'s practice within a tradition of underground comics that upend the semiological and ideological underpinnings of the genre, by shifting attention from content to form. Bissonaut connects Tales of Amnesia (2002), Ganesh’s first zine and collection of prints to a more recent endeavor, Eyes of Time (2014-15), an installation exploring the alternate temporal dimensions of the goddess figure.
