Interview with Suchitra Mattai: Suchitra Mattai's Debut Solo NYC Art Show Herself as Another

WNYC, February 24, 2022


This month, the multimedia artist Suchitra Mattai's first solo show in New York City is on display. Working with mixed-media paintings, fiber sculptures, and installations, Mattai uses her work as a means to criticize how society views "others", be it immigrants, or those dealing with mental illness. Her Indo-Caribbean descent informs how she thinks about the connection between history, labor, and colonialism in her work, and we see these themes present in the show, which is called, Herself As Another. The show will be on display at Hollis Taggart Gallery in Chelsea until March 12. Mattai is with us to talk about her work.
