Surabhi Ghosh is an artist and educator based in Tiohtiá:ke / Montreal, Quebec. She uses textiles, patterning, and site-responsive installations to materialize contradictory narratives which begin and end in her own experiences, while analyzing the relationship between materials, objects, and their contested cultural meanings. Her current work investigates the transmission of cultural identity and nationalist ideology to diasporic people, specifically South Asian immigrants and their descendants in North America.
Recently, her work has been exhibited at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, Heaven Gallery in Chicago, FOFA Gallery in Montreal, SPACE Gallery in Portland, ME, Gund Gallery in Gambier, OH, Hawthorn Contemporary in Milwaukee, and Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown, PEI. Her most recent solo exhibition opened at the Maison des arts de Laval in May 2023, titled Le poids de nos mythes [The weight of our myths].
Ghosh received her MFA in Fiber from Cranbrook Academy of Art and her BFA in Fabric Design from the University of Georgia. She previously taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Oregon. She is currently Associate Professor of Studio Arts and Fibres & Material Practices at Concordia University.
