Soumya Sankar Bose in Refest 2019

March 14-16, 2019

Works from Soumya Sankar Bose's series, Full Moon on a Dark Night will be on view at Refest 2019.

Inspired by the subconscious, Full Moon on a Dark Night shares stories from the artist’s LGBT friends in India – their rights, dreams, and desires. In a society that prevents them from living a ‘normal’ life, this work imagines a world in which freedom to live according to one’s own desires exists for all.

Refest is CultureHub's annual festival that brings artists, activists, and technologists together to explore our role in re-shaping the future.
