With this exhibition, the organizers sought to present the folk arts that represent the traditions of the South Asian immigrant community, as well as the dialectics between art and performance and between traditional and contemporary expression. They focused especially on the voices and imaginations of those still living in rural communities in northern India as they reach out to and become involved in the western worlds to which some of their kin have migrated. That a Bengali pata now deals with the atom bomb speaks to the intersection of the worlds of India and the U.S., and to the importance of linking these voices through this exhibition .
