Camera South Asia


South Asia Institute

St. Mary's Episcopal Church, 521 W 126th St, New York, NY

Join us for the second edition of Camera South Asia, a symposium on South Asia's lens-based cultures.

We return this year to host a conversation that takes an expansive view of South Asia and its diasporic geographies. Our renowned roster artists, curators, and scholars probe the relation between aesthetics and politics, migration and memory, be it in post-1990s India or the 19th century oceanic voyages of the subcontinent’s “old diaspora.” Camera South Asia seeks to balance a focus on the contemporary with a long view of the past and to unsettle easy ascriptions of identity or authenticity, be it for individuals or for images.

Please note the event has been relocated to the historical sancturary of St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Harlem.
