About her...
Devangana Kumar is a self taught artist who recently opened her first solo show in the Capital, Pageants of the Raj; the work force. The exhibition was a representation of Kumar’s exploration of Indian visual culture over several years. It had 30 artworks that formed a part of a conceptual project through which Kumar seeks to interrupt the pervasive narrative of caste that was propagated by colonial ethnography. Kumar will open her next show at Tao Art Gallery,  Mumbai tomorrow.
