National Indo-American Museum Launches with E/Merge Art Exhibit Interviews — Art and Heritage

Picture This Post, October 14, 2021

This week, in the midst of our toxic time when organizations like Stop Asian Hate have a newfound purpose, a unique museum (National Indo-American Museum, NIAM) dedicated to preserving the history and cultural treasures of the Indian American diaspora, found its first brick and mortar non-virtual home.


Envisioning its mission, in part, as helping to create bridges that both cross-generational divides as well reaching out to wider audiences, NIAM looked to artists to delve into the diaspora, sharing their insights as visual art.  This exhibit, E/Merge, aims to “shed light on notions of origins, narratives of dispersal, and cultural difference under the conditions of globalism..” according to its curator, Shaurya Kumar.
