Star Spangled Art Exhibit by Preetika Rajgariah, MFA Candidate, School of Art + Design. Star Spangled explores themes of cultural identity, perceptions of exoticism, and gendered materiality while specifically referencing my upbringing as an Indian born American. “I seek to understand the increasingly globalized world and the multifaceted experience of populations. Through the work, I ask questions of the complicated and tangled relationship of nationalism, identity, and the intersections of cultures.” Combining tactile elements such as Indian textiles, glitter, and embroidery thread, creates a bodily representation to further the discourse over the portrayal of cultures, both individually, as well as within the complex context of a globalized society.
