Momentum 3: Kanishka Raja
January 19 - May 1, 2005
The third exhibition in the ongoing Momentum series features the work of Boston-based, Calcutta-born painter Kanishka Raja, winner of the 2004 Digitas / ICA Artist Prize. In the past few years Raja has received considerable attention for his carefully built images of dizzying interior landscapes, which blend a hard edge illustrational style with Op art patterning, Indian miniaturist detail, and American pop references. For his Momentum exhibition, Raja presents new and recent work in an installation that responds to the architecture of the ICA Momentum gallery.
