British artist Chila Burman’s art brings to light the importance of “Indian traditions within British identity.” Here’s more from Science Museum UK:
British artist Chila Kumari Singh Burman has added light to the darkness. Since November, the north bank of the Thames has been illuminated by her winter commission for Tate Britain ‘Remembering a brave new world’. Also conceived to celebrate Diwali, her vibrant work has been a much-needed moment of light and joy in a lockdown month, but also argues for the importance of Indian traditions within British identity.
Burman has also illuminated our work at the Science Museum Group. In 2017, she worked on a major new commission for our Illuminating India season, which told the stories of the Indian innovators and thinkers who have often been overlooked or written out of Western narratives of history. Her works are now part of the permanent collection and have since featured in Burman’s solo show ‘Tales of Valiant Queens’ at Middlesbrough Institute of Art in 2018.
