Home? Crosscurrents in Contemporary South Asian/American Art is the third in a series of exhibitions which the Brush Art Gallery and Studios has organized in conjunction with UMass Lowell's Building Community Through Culture Program. In the exhibition South Asian culture is explored through the rich and diverse art being produced by South Asian artists living in America. These artists are often confronted with the challenge of maintaining their cultural heritage while adapting to the conventions of contemporary art, and somehow managing to define themselves in the process. Their works illuminate the cross-pollination which is an inevitable result of bridging cultures, while at the same time reflecting their immersion in the cultural pluralism which has been present in South Asia for centuries. Images of works in the catalogue are accompanied by artist biographies and artist statements.
