During the closure of the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey due to the ongoing health crisis, we’re working on ways to bring art to you at home, virtually. This is one such effort, which we’re playfully calling Cabin Fever Artist Talks. For these, we’ve asked artists to tell us a little about themselves and their work. In some cases, they’ll be answering questions provided by the Art Center. In others, they’ll be showing us around their studio or highlighting works in progress.
For this installment we hear from Spandita Malik, a New York-based artist from India. Her work is concerned with the current global socio-political state of affairs with an emphasis on women’s rights and gendered violence. Malik specializes in process-based work in photography, recently with photographic surface embroideries and collaborations with women in India.
