Corita Kent Arts & Culture Talks Lecture Series Presents "Women and South Asian Art"
DORCHESTER, MA.- The Dorchester Arts Collaborative (DAC), in collaboration with The Boston Home, presents the third installment of the Corita Kent Arts & Culture Talks, with a lecture on “Women and South Asian Art,” by Dorchester artist Patricia Burson. The series is named for artist Corita Kent, best known for her Rainbow Gas Tank near the Southeast Expressway in Dorchester. The lecture is free and open to the public and takes place at the Boston Home Activities Room (2049 Dorchester Ave., at corner of Gallivan Blvd.) on Sunday, April 26 at 4 p.m. There is ample free parking at The Boston Home, which is also near the Ashmont T station. For more information call (617) 839-6734.

In October 2008, Burson made her third trip to South Asia to teach drawing, artistic anatomy and world art history to young Muslim women from six Asian countries at the Asian University for Women in Chittagong, Bangladesh, as well as to art and architecture students at BRAC, Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee University and the Institute of Fine Art in Dhaka, Bangladesh. In this presentation Burson will present an illustrated overview of her experiences working and traveling in Bangladesh, illuminating the art scene in Dhaka during the Asian Art Biennale, and addressing the challenges and joys of working across cultural experience, drawing on the visual arts as a universal and unifying language.

The 45-minute presentation will be followed by a Q&A opportunity, and light refreshments will be served.

Patricia Burson, a Dorchester resident for three decades, has been painting for as long as she can remember. She has exhibited at the DeCordova Museum, the Smithsonian Institute's Renwick Gallery, the Carnegie Institute Museum of Art, the Bunting Institute at Radcliffe College, and the Provincetown Art Museum. Her work is drawn from direct observation of natural and social landscapes.
