NEW YORK, NY.- Hales announced representation of New York based artist Chitra Ganesh. Ganesh's first solo exhibition with the gallery will be held at Hales New York in 2021.

Across a twenty-year practice, Chitra Ganesh (b. 1975 Brooklyn, New York) has developed an expansive body of work rooted in drawing and painting, which has evolved to encompass video, sculpture, computer generated image, and collage. Informed by her studies in literature and semiotic theory, Ganesh explores storytelling traditions and mythologies, bringing important historical conversations to the contemporary moment.

With influences including South Asian iconography, Bollywood posters, science fiction, vintage comic books, and that of queer theory, Ganesh forms nonlinear narratives and highly detailed visual worlds that subvert traditional storytelling to create women and queer-centric narratives of the future. She draws out alternative depictions of sexuality and power, highlighting the accounts of women who have often been subsumed or marginalized. In Ganesh’s work, women and queer characters become the protagonists, actively shaping their futures.

As part of this new relationship, Hales will be collaborating with Gallery Wendi Norris, San Francisco, USA and Gallery Espace, New Delhi, India.

Ganesh's work has been widely exhibited in the United States and internationally, including solo shows at Brooklyn Museum, NY, USA; MoMA PS1, NY, USA; The Kitchen, NY, USA; The Rubin Museum of Art, NY, USA; The Andy Warhol Museum, PA, USA; and Gothenburg Kunsthalle, Sweden. Her work is represented in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, NY, USA; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA, USA; the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY, USA; The Brooklyn Museum, NY, USA; The Art Institute of Chicago, IL, USA; The Ford Foundation, NY, USA; the Devi Art Foundation, India, among others.
