    North Court

    Indian artist Shalinee Kumari is making a rare visit to the United States for a short residency at the museum in conjunction with the exhibition Painting Is My Everything: Art from India’s Mithila Region. Drop in to watch Kumari create a new work and witness the process of Mithila painting with your own eyes. 
    Born in 1985 in a rural Mithila village, Kumari studied geography before attending Mithila Art Institute. Now based in Hyderabad, India, she is one of the young female artists who is pushing the boundaries of Mithila painting by using the centuries-old style for personal self-expression. Her work focuses on topics of global concern that are also pressing issues in her life and community, including climate change, terrorism and gender equality.  


Painting Is My Everything: Art from India's Mithila Region is organized by the Asian Art Museum. Presentation is made possible with the generous support of The Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang Fund for Excellence in Exhibitions and Presentations; Joan L. Danforth; Warren Felson and Lucy Sun; John Maa, M.D.; and Society for Art and Cultural Heritage of India (SACHI).
