The Arts Club of Chicago presents Unsettled Structures, a solo show by Rathin Burman, curated by Janine Mileaf.
In this show, the artist looks at the legacy of colonial mansions in their hometown of Kolkata, India. These grand, luxurious buildings have been repopulated over time by migrants who come to the urban center to escape conflict, climate change, famine, or political unrest. Barman’s sculptures begin with a sense of dwelling borne out of the isolation of the pandemic and in light of ongoing pressures to house the dispossessed across the globe.
