The torrid history of Indigo is reimagined by artists from Chicago, USA and Gujarat, India. Diana Lowenstein Fine Arts presents Indigo, a traveling exhibition exhibited in major cities throughout India and now crossing to the US. The exhibition presents complementary bodies of artwork by Indian artist Shelly Jyoti and US artist Laura Kina in a range of media including hand-embroidery on khadi fabric, indigo resist dyeing, Sanskrit calligraphy and mixed-media on canvas. The narrative threads running throughout the artists’ work evoke India’s colonial history, stories of immigration, and the tensions and transformations of cultures evolving in a changing world.
