Cheryl Mukherji: Wanted Beautiful Home Loving Girl
January 12 – February 19th, 2022

Opening Day: Saturday, January 15th | 12pm – 5pm ET

“Wanted Beautiful Home Loving Girl, a solo exhibition of new lens-based work by 2021 Baxter St Resident Cheryl Mukherji. Encompassing new photographs, sculpture, printmaking, and hand-painted tableaux made expressly for her New York debut, Mukherji leans into and reimagines the tradition of Indian matrimonial portraiture as a meditation on prescribed femininity. Using her family albums that focus on her mother’s presence as a point of departure, the exhibition also explores the idea of origin and inheritance and the nuanced relationship between mother and daughter through the lens of arranged marriages. The show marks the culmination of Mukherji’s Baxter St residency and introduces her artistic practice to the art world at large. ”
