Join us for the opening of 2019 ICP-Bard MFA candidate Avijit Halder’s solo exhibition, my body of work, at the ICP-Bard MFA Studios in Long Island City.

In my body of work, Halder presents stills, paintings, collage, and video to investigate the dichotomy of gender binary in his displacement and in his queer community.  In an act of swaddling through his mother’s memory, Halder gets lost in the fluidity of fabric by focusing on photographic performance to understand the representation of the male body as it relates to his own. 


Avijit Halder (b. 1989 Kolkata) currently lives and works in Brooklyn. His work is rooted in portraiture, the idea of self and others, as he navigates to find a community. By incorporating elements of layering with color, materiality, and memories, Halder’s work attempts to decode and recreate new surfaces. He holds a BFA in film from New York University.
