Shivangi Ladha Featured in 'Young Subcontinent: Sightlines' at the Serendipity Arts Festival, Goa, India

New Prints 2018/Winter Artist-in-Residence Shivangi Ladha is featured in Young Subcontinent: Sightlines at the Serendipity Arts Festival in Goa, India, from December 15-22, 2018. She will be showcasing works from her ongoing Acid Attack Survivors series, which she began during her residency at IPCNY.

For this series, Shivangi interviewed acid attack survivors throughout the world and responded to their stories by using acid to etch their portraits into zinc plates. Her aim is to “raise awareness of the domestic abuse and violence that these women faced [by] using acid as an agent of creation instead of using [it] as a destructive tool.”

In its third edition, the Young Subcontinent project “attempt[s] to to chart the contours and sightlines of South Asian art imagination and art practice.” Read more about the festival here.
