2019 Talk Programme : Artist & Photographer talks announced

2019 Talk Programme

GRAIN hosts evening talks given by artists and photographers, throughout the year, and in collaboration with its partners. The talks are frequently programmed to coincide with the regional exhibitions, events and commissions.

Arpita Shah
26th March | 6pm
Midlands Art Centre
£5 / £3

Arpita Shah is a photographic artist and educator based in Edinburgh, Scotland. She works between photography and film, exploring the fields where culture and identity meet. As an India-born artist, Shah spent an earlier part of her life living between India, Ireland and the Middle East before settling in the UK. This migratory experience is reflected in her practice, which often focuses on the notion of home, belonging and shifting cultural identities. Shah’s work tends to draw from Asian and Eastern mythology, using it both visually and conceptually to explore the issues of cultural displacement in the Asian Diaspora.
