Dear Shaded Viewers,
Princeton University #HumanitiesCouncil‘s “Organizing Stories” presents multidisciplinary artist, anthropologist, and social justice advocate Indrani Pal-Chaudhuri as she invites audiences to participate and collaborate in an art and activism workshop on participatory visual and digital storytelling, with her in-progress series of works, “Mythography, Digital Storytelling and Counter-Colonizing the Heteropatriarchal Gaze.” Join us Friday April 23 4:30 – 5:30 PM EST.
“Having colonized the globe, the white straight male gaze dominates contemporary film and art, distorting humanity’s representation and self-reflection through a narrow lens. The normalization of this gaze and its heroes privileged via violence, often obscures the ways it objectifies and marginalizes women, LGBTQ communities, and people of color, amplified intersectionally. Using cinema verite, #magicalrealism, and participatory visual and #digitalstorytelling, my work invites audiences to reflect and counter-colonize the gaze, with an #intersectional multiplicity of perspectives, to inspire a more just and equitable world.” –Pal-Chaudhuri
