I Will Meet You Yet Again: Contemporary Sikh Art

I Will Meet You Yet Again: Contemporary Sikh Art

January 28–May 26, 2024

I Will Meet You Yet Again invites a fresh look at the history and vitality of the Sikh culture through paintings, posters, tapestries, and multimedia installations. A hybrid array of material approaches reflect personal and gendered perspectives on the history of the community and its visual expressions. The works on view inform a Sikh understanding of “home,” as told through the eyes of Sikh and non-Sikh artists. Their narratives find inspiration in holy scriptures, legacies of persecution and protest, and the entwined forces of home and longing at play throughout the Sikh community’s struggle for existence.
