Nandita Raman's work is exhibited at Baxter Street at the Camera Club of New York's Body is A Situation.
In her first New York City solo exhibition, Raman looks at the most available body, her own, in an effort to locate herself in the here and now; and opens it up to performativity of gender. In so looking, she embodies Simone de Beauvoir’s sentiment: “The body is not a thing, it is a situation: it is our grasp on the world and our sketch of our project”.
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 15 | 6-8 pm

A selection from Charan Singh’s portrait series Kothis, Hijras, Giriyas and Others is on view at Clifford Chance. The photographs document homosexual Indian sub-cultures. The series title comes from the indigenous terms used by queer working class and transgendered men, often forced into sex work, to define their different and particular sexual identities. In Indian society, where class and caste are still major forces, these three groups are among some of the most marginalized.
