Join HENI Art Club for an exclusive conversation with iconic contemporary artist Chila Kumari Singh Burman

Describing herself as a ‘Punjabi Liverpudlian’, Burman mashes up stereotypes to create new identities beyond the limitations imposed on South Asian women in a British cultural context. Her work pushes the boundaries of creative experimentation while exploring themes of feminism, race, and representation.

During the event, Chila will discuss her rich and varied career, spanning printmaking, painting, sculpture, film, and multi-layered installation, with key projects including Tate Britain’s 2020 Winter Commission Remembering a Brave New World and the 2021 Covent Garden Installation Do You See Words in Rainbows.
