Rina Banerjee creates large-scale installations, sculptures, and paintings with lyrical and introspective titles. Addressing identity politics, visual anthropology, and feminist theory, Banerjee’s oeuvre also focuses on ethnicity and American Diasporic histories. As an Indian immigrant who lived in the United Kingdom and now lives in New York City, she highlights and celebrates her multinational background through her work.
