A Curatorial Conversation and Studio Visit with Artist Suchitra Mattai, curator Rebecca Hart, and gallerist Doug Kacena

Rebecca Hart, Vicki and Kent Logan Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Denver Art Museum, will introduce and contextualize Suchitra Mattai’s work through the lens of the artist’s Indo-Caribbean background and her work’s post-colonial focus. They will consider the roles of memory and myth in the rewriting and unraveling of colonial histories; the conversation will also explore topics related to migration, displacement, and labor in the Caribbean and its diaspora, as well as the materiality and processes that help to orchestrate investigations of these topics in Mattai’s work. Doug Kacena, Owner of K Contemporary (Booth C8) will moderate the conversation.
