Ariana Sarwari in exhibition “Social Memory: Sites of Remembrance”

Written by:


Ariana Sarwari (@ariana__sarwari) is part of group exhibition “Social Memory: Sites of Remembrance” at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (@efaprojectspace) put on by the South Asian Womxn’s Creative Collective (SAWCC). It will be up from March 16th till April 9th, 2023!

“South Asian Womxn’s Creative Collective (SAWCC) brings together 15 artists working across diverse media presenting works that reflect upon the idea of social memory and how the possession of individual memory coincides with the collective memory of a group. For over 25 years, SAWCC has allowed South Asian femmes to tell their own stories; this community has been a site for cultural memory to flourish and a site for identity negotiation within the larger hegemonic forces of Western society. The inter-generational group of artists in this exhibition reformulate new modes of collectivity and investigate the role of memory, identity, and belonging in their works.”
