Bangalore-based artist Ranjani Shettar has recently gained considerable international recognition for her sculpture. Using both modern technologies and traditional Indian craft techniques, she creates environments that are as stunning as they are sensual. This exhibition — the first presentation of Shettar's work on the West Coast — includes a sculpture exhibited in SFMOMA's Rooftop Garden, as well as a pair of site-specific installations and a group of woodcut prints.
The New Work series is organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and is generously supported by Collectors Forum, the founding patron of the series.
