Chitra Ganesh's work incorporates collage, photography, drawing, text, and paint to tell personal and postcolonial stories, which are enacted by characters from Hindu and other cultures. She is particularly interested in the expression of gender in mythology, poetry and song lyrics (both Bollywood and girl rock), the logic of dreams, imperialism, and queer politics. She has exhibited internationally in Canada, Brazil, Italy, and India, and in New York at White Columns, the Queens Museum of Art, the Bronx Museum, Momenta Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and Apex Art. She is based in Brooklyn. She holds a BA from Brown University and an MFA from Columbia University.
