Artist Talk & Performance: “Where We Belong- Artists in the Archive | Philadelphia, PA”

Saturday, April 8, 2017 | Philadelphia, PA

On April 8th, South Asian American Digital Archive will host a day-long symposium bringing together artists, activists, academics, and archivists to explore ways to challenge the systematic erasure of stories of marginalized communities in America.

The symposium will be held at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and will premiere works from five artists – musicians, visual artists, and dancers – who have engaged SAADA’s archives to find inspiration from overlooked histories of South Asians in the US.

This cohort includes Rudresh Mahanthappa, Chitra Ganesh, Chiraag Bhakta, Joti Singh, and Zain Alam. Their year-long discovery process culminates with a presentation of works-in-progress, discussions of art and archives as activism, and other interactive workshops.
