Artist and creator of Regarding India project to visit UI Oct. 3

Regarding India, Conversations With Artists is an ongoing series of over 60 video interviews with artists representing diverse mediums and subjects, living in various regions of India. The creator of this series, Kathryn Myers, will visit Iowa City Thursday, Oct. 3, to talk about her work. The presentation will be held from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in Room 240 Art Building West.

Myers is a painter and professor of art at the University of Connecticut. This project started in 2011 through a Fulbright-Nehru fellowship for a course Myers teaches on Indian art and popular culture.

During her presentation at the UI, Myers will focus on conversation with three artists: Dinesh Khanna, V.Ramesh, and Wawo X Waswo. To see the interviews she has conducted with these and more Indian artists, visit the Regarding India website at http://regardingindia.com.
