“UnSuitable Girls” at Smithsonian’s “Beyond Bollywood: Indians in America” Exhibition

Three portraits from “Unsuitable Girls” –a collaboration between Swati Khurana and Anjali Bhargava will be shown in a groundbreaking exhibition at the National Museum of Natural History (NMNH). Curated by Masum Momaya, the exhibition will explore the heritage, daily experience and numerous contributions that Indian immigrants and Indian Americans have made to shaping the United States. Included in the exhibition will be historical and contemporary images and several dozen artifacts, including those documenting histories of discrimination and resistance, those conveying daily experiences and those symbolizing achievements across the professions. Music and visual art works providing commentary on the Indian American experience will also form a critical component of the exhibition.

The exhibition will be up through March 2015.
