The program is part of the EducationUSA’s International Education Week (IEW) - a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education and is being hosted at NIAS as part of their Literary, Arts and Heritage Forum

Annu Palakunnathu Matthew’s photo-based artwork (recently exhibition at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale) is a striking blend of still and moving imagery. Her larger work draws on archival photographs as a source of inspiration to re-examine historical narratives. She often uses archival imagery as a starting point to give the viewer the opportunity to question established narratives and consider parallel histories. She makes
use of the ever-expanding digital toolbox to make her work increasingly more accessible. Her presentation will also be an overview of her work including what she is working on for her Fulbright Fellowship in India.
