BHARTI KHER SKETCHBOOKS AND DIARIES

20 September - 10 September
Organized by: Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
Venue: Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Fenway Gallery
25 Evans Way
Boston
02115

Bharti Kher, 2013 Artist-in-Residence at the Gardner, was enriched and recharged by spending time thinking and living amongst the Museum’s extraordinary building and art treasures. The focus of this show is a series of drawings and notebooks Kher made during that time. The drawings are very tactile, often provocative, and charged with humor and a capriciousness that is smart and mischievous at the same time. They reflect on gender and motherhood, anatomy, and the physiology of pregnancy. They speak of empathy and love while investigating the enigmatic paradoxes and ambiguities of what it means to be human.
