Behind the Lens: Sunil Gupta


About The Event

Behind the Lens: Sunil Gupta
Friday, April 22, 12 p.m. CT  
Presented virtually on Zoom 

In this session, Beautiful Diaspora / You Are Not the Lesser Part exhibiting artist Sunil Gupta will lead a virtual studio visit. Over a career spanning more than four decades, Gupta has maintained a visionary approach to photography, producing bodies of work that are pioneering in their social and political commentary. The artist’s diasporic experience of multiple cultures informs a practice dedicated to themes of race, migration, and queer identity—his own lived experience a point of departure for photographic projects born from a desire to see himself and others like him represented in art history.
