Rina Banerjee’s work investigates the possibilities of cultural identity: its relics, how we identify ourselves, and how that perception changes through the eyes of others. Textiles, shells, antique furnishings, and other vestiges of culture are manipulated and transformed, their meanings complicated by the viewer’s associations. Her work has been exhibited internationally, with a notable solo exhibition at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC. Her works are also included
in many private and public collections such as the Whitney Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Centre George
Pompidou, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Queens Museum, and the Brooklyn Museum.
