As we approach the final weeks of the fall semester, we want to share with you two opportunities to interact with Meeta Mastani, our fall 2016 Interdisciplinary Artist in Residence. Both events are free and open to the public.

On Wednesday, November 30, Mastani will discuss her art practice, Bindaas Unlimited (a sustainable fair trade textile and craft business), and her work with artisans in rural Rajasthan, India at Hand-Crafted Entrepreneurship. This artist talk takes place in the Plenary Room, Grainger Hall (975 University Ave.) at 5:30pm and is presented by the Arts Institute and the Bolz Center for Arts Administration, Wisconsin BBA and Office of Diversity and Inclusion at the Wisconsin School of Business.

Tactile Textiles: Colors and Culture, the culminating event of Meeta’s residency, takes place on Friday, December 2 at 7 p.m. in the Madison Room at Madison Public Library, Central Branch (201 W. Miffiln St.). New works by students enrolled in Meeta’s course will be unveiled that evening as part of The Bubbler @ Madison Public Library’s Night Light series. The opening of the show will feature two performances of Rubedo, a collaborative dance piece created by Li Chiao-Ping Dance in response to Meeta’s work. This exhibition will be on display in the Madison Room from December 2-December 6.
