Join us for an artist talk with Sita Kuratomi Bhaumik, an Oakland-based artist, writer, and educator who uses art as a strategy to connect memory and history with the urgent social issues of our time. In addition to her artistic practice, Bhaumik will discuss her forthcoming book We Make Constellations of the Stars, which interrogates not only what makes an artist an artist, but how connection is crucial for personal and political transformation as an artist of color. Part of the 2022-2023 Art Lecture Series at Mills College at Northeastern University.
