About the Event

Pilsen Arts and Community House invites you to an interactive presentation and talk by artist Divyangi

Shukla on her artistic journey and her projects.

Divyangi Shukla is a female artist from India currently pursuing her MFA in Painting at the

School of the Art institute of Chicago. Her practice involves planned trips or daily encounters

with people. She creates these moments of contact through continuous drawing and note-making.

Puppets, sculptures, paintings and reflective texts are an integral part of her contemplation of

these interactions with people. Often, she takes elements from these encounters like patterns of

the dresses of children she met, toys, dolls and plush animals owned by them, objects and

memorabilia collected or kept by aged neighbors, fabrics telling about their lived lives and

inheritance and then creates art by replicating these in her own ways.

She is deeply interested in found objects and materials that help her re-invoke the experiences

and emotions she has had with all the people. She wishes to communicate these emotions,

narratives, memories and experiences through her figurative, abstracted, caricaturized and

expressionistic works.

Join Divyangi as she speaks about her thought process, her ideas and her stories that go behind

the art she creates.

**For the interactive portion of the presentation, we invite visitors to bring objects or items from home to be part of the discussion. These objects will become new inspiration and elements that may influence new work by Divyangi. Examples of objects/items to bring:

- Personal meaningful object

- Something that invokes a memory 

- An item that belonged to a past loved one

- An object gifted to you by a relative

- A favorite piece of clothing

- A favorite blanket

- An item that is present when practicing self care

- A picture 

- Anything that sparks an emotion, thought or feeling when you see or hold it

*This is a FREE Event. Donations are welcome.
