Kiran Chandra is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. Her work is based in questions of language and meaning and its conceptual vocabulary is informed by her BA in Literature from Stephen’s College in Delhi, India and her MFA from Hunter College in New York City. Being born and raised in Kolkata, India, schooled in the United States, and having attended residencies in Italy, Sweden, and Mexico has instilled in her work a sensitivity to location, dislocation, praxis, temporality, power, and place. Kiran teaches Art History and Art Education at N.Y.U. and Hunter College, and is a museum educator at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Modern Art.
