14 August - 31 October 2010
Usurp Gallery proudly presents “Chila Burman’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition” – the first retrospective of Chila Burman, celebrating over 20 years of experimental and provocative art by one of the leading figures among UK Black and Asian artists
Glitter and bindis collide with print, paint, photographic and mixed media in Chila Burman’s explorations of the constructions of classed, gendered, sexualised and ‘raced’ subjectivities, personal memories, and the physicality and pleasures of visual materials.
Experience a fiesty dynamic in the intimacy of looking and questioning.
