Eight contemporary artists of south Asian origin, brought together by artist / researcher Soumya Sitaraman, will open a month long exhibition Sept.15 at Works Gallery titled Shakti – Roots of vision.” Don’t let preconceived notions of Indian art sway you, for the key word here is contemporary. Sitaraman, for example, has created a mural she calls “What We Live By” – on a Volks Wagen beetle.
