3. “Suchitra Mattai: Herself as Another” at Hollis Taggart


Suchitra Mattai is a Guyanese artist who uses imagery from her Indian heritage to comment on colonialism and patriarchy. In her solo show at Hollis Taggart, Mattai presents mixed-media paintings, sculptures, and installations to explore the theme of “othering.” The artist used The Ashgate Research Companion to Monsters and the Monstrous as the main source for her research into folklore monsters, tales that reflect the taboos and stereotypes often applied to those denied power. Through the works in this show, Mattai creates “a space to confront these misunderstandings… and to reflect on the experience and perspective of the ‘other’ as a means of fostering empathy and connection,” the gallery states.


Location: Hollis Taggart, 521 West 26th Street, 1st Floor, New York
Price: Free
Time: Opening reception, Thursday, 6 p.m.–8 p.m.; Tuesday–Saturday, 11 a.m.–5 p.m.
