Ranu Mukherjee: “A Bright Stage” at de Young Museum
July 14, 2018 - January 20, 2019
de Young Museum, 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Dr, San Francisco, CA 94118


As part of the fine art museum’s Contemporary Projects series, the San Francisco–based artist unveils a site-specific installation that blends wall painting and printed fabric with video animation. Evoking a banyan tree grove—which, in the tree’s native India, offers canopies friendly to social gatherings—the work, situated in the building’s atrium, reflects on the space’s qualities as a free and accessible place for public action and interaction.
