Chila Kumari Singh Burman @ Tate Britain

14 November 2020 - 31 January 2021

Chila Kumari Singh Burman creates a new work for Tate Britain’s iconic façade.  Blending styles and materials, Burman’s feminist practice spans printmaking, painting, installation, and film. Drawing on her Punjabi heritage and Liverpudlian working-class background, Burman’s work explores the multiplicity of South Asian identities within a British context.

She reworks and weaves together her own material and found images from art and popular culture to deconstruct stereotypes, critique imperialism and its legacies, and propose radical new visions of South Asian and British identities.

This year’s Winter Commission will open in time for Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights.
