Suman Gujral

Suman Gujral’s history as a child of refugees and immigrants underlies her practice. Her parents were forcibly displaced by the 1947 Partition of India. It was during her MA that she came to understand the ongoing impact of Partition on them and millions of others. The cycle of war and displacement, rooted in colonial action, which un-homed her parents, continues today. She feels that as an artist and poet, she’s in a unique position to cast a light on these difficult subjects. She is fascinated by the human ability to survive and thrive in the aftermath of difficult times.
