Beyond Borders: The Art of Siona Benjamin
June 16 – September 25, 2022

Siona Benjamin is a painter originally from Bombay, now living in the US. Her work reflects her background of being raised Jewish in a predominantly Hindu and Muslim India. In her paintings and installations, she combines the imagery of her past with the role she plays in America today. She creates cross-cultural and transcultural art imbued with perspectives bridging the traditional and the modern to spark discourse across cultures. Her work has been exhibited in the US, Canada, Europe, Israel, India, and Asia – including works from the second Fulbright Fellowship she was awarded for a project entitled: ‘Motherland to Fatherland: Indian Transcultural Jews in Israel’.

Featuring a selection of work from several of Siona’s series, this uniquely customized exhibit will underscore questions raised about what and where is “home”, while evoking issues of identity, immigration and the role of art in social change. Through these themes the grouping will delve into the personal feelings of an outsider looking in and navigating notions of inclusion and exclusion.
