From the exhibit
The exhibit will be on display at the Queen Museum of Art from October 9th to October 24th. The 2010 Re-Drawing Resistance tour will open in Queens, New York,
travel across town to the Brooklyn Family Justice Center, then move up
to Boston area colleges, and finally end at the Thorncliffe Neighborhood
Organization in Toronto.
Re-Drawing Resistance celebrates the creative expression and resilience of South Asian women across the diaspora as they struggle to break the cycle of violence that afflicts generations of South Asian women.
The collection includes artwork, photography and videos by South Asian
women survivors of violence, their families and their artist allies.
Sanctuary for Families has partnered with the International Foundation for Crime Prevention and Victim Care (PCVC) in Chennai, India and the Thorncliffe Neighborhood Organization in Toronto, Canada to create a transcontinental art exhibit.
The opening reception will feature a performance piece as well as presentations by Serena Chaudury, co-founder of Re-Drawing Resistance, Sanctuary for Families, Prasanna Poornachandra, founder of PCVC, as well as artist contributors and domestic violence survivors.
