Divya Mehra (MFA Columbia University, New York, U.S.A.) Mehra’s research-fueled practice often explores marginalization, otherness and the empty promise of diversity. Through appropriating, editing and reassembling a variety of literary, comedic and musical sources, she creates an acerbic dialogue on the commandeering, consumption and construction of race and identity politics. Often foregrounding the ongoing struggle with her personal diasporic identity and cultural expectations, she calls into question our unexamined beliefs. Mehra’s work has been included in a number of exhibitions and screenings across North America and overseas. Mehra is represented in Toronto by Georgia Scherman Projects and currently divides her time between Winnipeg, Delhi, and New York.
