Wildflower Self Portraits Artist Talk with Barnali Ghosh
July 29 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDTFree
Join us at the Fremont Main Library in the Fukaya Meeting Room, Saturday, July 29th, 2pm-3pm, for an inspiring local artist talk with Barnali Ghosh as she brings to life her process in creating Wildflower Self-Portraits!
In 2021, Berkeley-based designer Barnali Ghosh started a new pandemic project: taking photographs of herself dressed as California native flowers, centering the brown body and using South Asian fabrics and dance forms. The images took the native plant world by storm. Ghosh will share the backstory of these viral images, and how the project helped her find belonging in the native plant community and beyond. Find her on Instagram at @berkeleywali and www.barnalighosh.art
Barnali Ghosh is an immigrant artist, landscape architect, and co-founder of the award-winning Berkeley South Asian Radical History Walking Tour. Her work attempts to bridge homes and homelands, and create spaces for belonging.
