CANCELED—Sikh Art Festival at the Fowler: May 18

May 18, 2024 | 4:00PM - 8:00PM


In honor of AAPI Heritage Month, we are offering two weekends of festivities that celebrate Sikh art and culture in conjunction with our exhibition I Will Meet You Yet Again: Contemporary Sikh Art. Join us for a film screening, North Indian classical music performance, and mehfil (concert) of Panjabi songs.

At 4 pm, Sikh Symphony will present a live performance of North Indian classical music on Sikh heritage instruments. At 4:45 pm Punjabi Art Collective (PAC) will host a screening of A Witness Amongst the Bodies: Surviving Bluestar, followed by a moderated conversation between PAC and curators Sonia Dhami and Syona Puliady. The evening will conclude with a mehfil (concert) by renowned vocalist Ishmeet Narula & her band exploring the compositions of poets of Panjab, including those that thread through the exhibition.
