Shivangi Ladha, IPCNY's New Prints 2018/Winterartist-in-residence, arrived from Noida, India on March 1st. She'll be printing in our workshop space and at our partner EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop until March 28, so stop by and see her work!
Shivangi printing in IPCNY's workshop space
Shivangi has started a new project here at IPCNY. After interviewing victims of acid attacks in India, she responds to their stories by using acid to etch their portraits into zinc plates. In the resulting series, acid is an agent of creation as well as destruction. With these prints, she aims to raise awareness of this particular form of violence.
Join Us on Thursday, March 22
