Artist talk: White Butterfly

Art Seminar

Milan Rai, Visiting Artist, South Asia Institute Art Program

Chair: Jinah Kim, Assistant Professor of History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University

Rai’s White Butterfly project was a personal art installation that has grown with a global outreach for different community causes and concerns. It is a demonstration of how the role of art can take different turns when shared across social media, connecting people and communities to effect social change and awareness. From Scotland to Greece to New York to Africa over the past two years, many connections around the world have been established.

Those connections became an unexpected source of support and real change in rapid response to the earthquake disasters in Nepal this year, initiating funding projects for immediate relief to provide sanitation facilities, toilets rebuilding a school and relocating an entire village. In this talk, Rai will introduce The White Butterfly project to the faculty and students at Harvard in the form of a retrospective photographic exhibition, including an interactive presentation.

Rai’s work will be on display starting April 11 in the follow locations: SAI office on the 4th floor CGIS South, CGIS South lobby (1730 Cambridge Street), and CGIS Knafel Lobby (1737 Cambridge Street).
