Join us for a conversation with Siona Benjamin, an Indian-American Jewish artist, originally from Mumbai but now residing in the United States, about her compelling art, which crosses multiple cultural boundaries, and a film about her art and the Mumbai Jewish community, Blue Like Me: The Art of Siona Benjamin, available on Amazon Prime Video. Benjamin’s transcultural Indian-Jewish art received praise in The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Financial Times, The Boston Globe, Art in America, Art New England, Art and Antiques, ArtNews, Moment Magazine, The Times of India, Mumbai Mirror, Marg Magazine, and other publications.
