British HinduPunjabi artists exhibition comes to Leicester

Internationally established London-based artist Chila Kumari Burman will be exhibiting her recent works at Embrace Arts, the University of Leicester’s arts centre.

Collage, botanical works and self-portraits will be displayed as part of My Rangila Merry-go-around from Friday 20 February until Sunday 29 March. Rangila, which means colourful in English, is highly reflected in Burman’s work. With an autobiographical focus partly reflected on Burman’s self-portraits, the artist uses technology to manipulate media and reinvent herself, playing around with the concept of selfies.

Inspired by popular culture, Bollywood, fashion, found objects, and femininity, Chila Kumari Burman’s work has been exhibited and is part of art collections around the world

The exhibition will be part of the celebration of the 130th anniversary of Leicester Society of Artists, alongside a talk with the artist on Friday 20 February at 7pm, tickets cost £7.

The exhibition is FREE, open for visitors Monday to Friday between 9.15am and 6pm and some weekends.
