Join Pelham Art Center for a virtual studio visit with Manju Shandler, exhibiting artist in Domestic Brutes.
Manju Shandler considers herself a visual storyteller. A theater designer and mixed-media artist, she creates sets, costumes, masks, and puppets for ballets, operas, and other performances. Her visual art makes reference to mythology, politics, and current events. The craft techniques essential to theater design also inform her visual art. Her sculptures are often mobile and articulated like puppets, and her paintings and two-dimensional work are often comprised of layers of handmade paper, sewn polyester film, vinyl, and other media.
